Addleshaw Goddard recruits Cormac Doyle to launch Irish tax practice
International law firm Addleshaw Goddard has announced the appointment of chartered accountant Cormac Doyle to head up its new tax practice in Ireland.
Mr Doyle joins from accountancy firm Crowe Ireland and has more than 20 years’ experience across aspects of tax, domestically and internationally. He was previously head of the tax department at EisnerAmper Ireland, after training at Deloitte.
His appointment marks the third service area Addleshaw Goddard has launched in Ireland in the past six months, following the recruitment of partner Gavin Blake to head a new energy practice and Jeanne-Marie Moriarty to launch a financial services and regulation practice.
This latest appointment will provide the firm’s clients with an integrated tax practice which brings the firm’s international reach and experience to bear, providing a transaction-focussed co-ordination of multi-jurisdictional tax and structuring services delivering a real competitive advantage.
A fellow of Chartered Accountants Ireland, Mr Doyle specialises in areas including tax on corporate transactions; general corporate tax; tax planning for international corporates; employment taxes; VAT issues; and property tax matters for international and Irish investors structuring property investments.
Mark Walsh, head of Ireland at Addleshaw Goddard, 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 is recognised as one of the fastest growing international law firms and the evolution of the Dublin office delivers on the ambitious targets we set out when Addleshaw Goddard launched here 18 months ago — and the exciting thing for all of our clients and people is that there is much more to come.”
Cormac Doyle, senior tax practitioner and head of tax at Addleshaw Goddard Ireland, said: “I’m excited to be joining a firm of Addleshaw Goddard’s stature and to have the unique opportunity to grow a tax advice practice within such a prestigious business.
“I’m looking forward to contributing to the overall growth of the firm as we provide a wider breadth of services to existing and new clients in areas including property, corporate, financial service, energy and more.”
