Tom Goldrick joined Houlihan Lokey‘s transaction advisory services practice as a managing director and head of M&A tax services.

Goldrick joined following a 13-year career at KPMG, where he was most recently a managing director in its M&A tax practice, focusing on providing buy-side and sell-side tax consulting services to both financial sponsors and strategic buyers. During his time there, he developed cross-border tax models under both pre- and post-tax reform frameworks and advised on transactions in North America, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region. Goldrick’s tax due diligence experience spans multiple sectors, including industrials, healthcare, technology, financial services and retail.

“We are delighted that Tom has joined our team to help our clients in the U.S. and around the world navigate these changing times,” Sean Murphy, head of transaction advisory services at Houlihan Lokey, said. “His experience in comparative modeling around tax reform and its potential impact on M&A transactions will be tremendously valuable to our clients in the U.S. going forward, and his equally impressive international experience will assist both U.S. multinationals and our international clients. We’re excited to introduce him to our clients as they increasingly seek the kind of expertise Tom possesses.”

“Houlihan Lokey’s leadership across its businesses, global footprint and depth of M&A due diligence expertise made this a perfect fit for me,” Goldrick said. “I am eager to continue the growth of the firm’s M&A tax services and work across financial and valuation advisory, corporate finance, and financial restructuring to develop the most compelling and comprehensive tax structuring and diligence offerings in financial services for our clients around the world.”
