“Conducting in-depth tax due diligence is an integral part of the transaction advisory process for our clients,” comments Ernesto Perez, Global Practice Leader of A&M Taxand and the firm’s Global Transaction Tax Advisory Practice. “The expansion of our Global Transaction Tax Advisory team will help us to continue to meet and exceed our clients’ tax planning needs for both domestic and cross-border mergers, acquisitions and other complex transactions.”
