Leading law firm A&L Goodbody has won a prestigious accolade at an awards ceremony in New York hosted by International Tax Review.

The Dublin-based firm was named “International Law Firm in the Americas 2015” for its cross-border tax work after being nominated by a panel of independent researchers.

These awards identify the leading international law firms throughout the US who have advised on the most innovative and challenging tax work. This award recognises the firm that has demonstrated excellence across an array of cross-border corporate tax work involving the US.

Peter Maher, head of A&L Goodbody’s tax department, said: “We are delighted to have received this accolade, particularly off the back of winning the ITR Irish Tax Firm of the Year award in both 2014 and 2015.

“It is in recognition of the work done by the Firm’s corporate tax group on many headline transactions such as Medtronic on its US$42.9bn acquisition of Covidien; Endo International plc on its acquisition of Auxilium for US$1.76bn; and Vidara Therapeutics Research on its acquisition by Horizon Pharma Inc and Horizon’s related corporate inversion into Ireland for €474m.”

International Tax Review is a global publication dedicated to international tax strategy for corporate tax directors, CFOs, tax lawyers and advisers.
