Ernesto Perez, managing director and global practice leader, said, “Marvin is one of the most experienced and well-regarded tax advisors in the European marketplace. He is an ideal leader for our growing tax practice in the region. The addition of Marvin is complemented by Louise, who is recognized as a leading advisor on compensation matters and Andrew, who is noted for his global merger and acquisitions expertise.”
