KPMG UK has announced the appointment of Sarah Churton to its international tax practice.
Churton joins the firm as a partner and will further strengthen KPMG’s international tax team. Churton has over 20 years’ experience in tax with EY and was most recently an international tax executive director, working out of the firm’s London and New York offices.
Churton brings considerable experience in advising clients in life sciences on cross-border tax issues including restructuring, diverted profits tax, R&D incentives, and transfer pricing.
The announcement follows the recent hire of partner and tax law specialist Matthew Herrington, who joined KPMG from international law firm McDermott Will & Emery.
Melissa Geiger, Partner and Head of International Tax at KPMG UK, said: “The international tax environment is complex and increasingly inter-connected. Clients are looking for trusted advice to help them navigate the challenges of complying with changing rules and regulations, not least the recent changes to the US tax system. We are continuing to invest in our international tax practice, further enhancing our existing team of exceptional professionals advising and supporting our clients. Sarah brings with her a wealth of experience in both UK and international tax, specifically in the life sciences sector.”
