International law firm Addleshaw Goddard has announced the appointment of Cormac Doyle to head up its new tax practice in Ireland.
He joins Addleshaw Goddard from accountancy firm Crowe Ireland, and has more than 20 years' experience across aspects of tax, domestically and internationally.
Doyle was previously head of the tax department at EisnerAmper Ireland, after training at Deloitte.
This is the third service area Addleshaw Goddard has launched in Ireland in the past six months alone – partner Gavin Blake was recruited to head a new energy practice and Jeanne-Marie Moriarty brought in to launch a team covering financial services and regulation.
Integrated tax practice
The firm says that the latest appointment will provide its clients with an integrated tax practice that “brings the firm's international reach and experience to bear”.
A fellow of Chartered Accountants Ireland, Doyle specialises in areas that include tax on corporate transactions, general corporate tax, tax planning for international companies, employment taxes, VAT, and property-tax matters for investors.
Mark Walsh (head of Ireland at Addleshaw Goddard, pictured) said: "Cormac has fantastic pedigree, and the new tax practice will complement our existing services, allowing us to provide a fuller offering to clients whatever their requirements.”
Addleshaw Goddard launched its Dublin office 18 months ago.
