Multinational law firm Pinsent Masons has hired tax partner Robert Dever to lead and develop its tax law practice in Dublin and strengthen its European transactional services group.

Mr Dever joins from his role as partner in the tax group at multinational law firm Eversheds Sutherland.

His experience includes advising large domestic and multinational corporations on all aspects of corporate tax with a particular emphasis on, and expertise in, M&A transactions, corporate restructurings, inward investment projects, cross-border tax planning, demergers, private equity, joint ventures, as well as transfer pricing.

Ann Lalor, head of Pinsent Masons’ Dublin office, said: “Robert is a highly regarded tax lawyer with a wealth of experience and expertise in the Irish market, and the recent winner of the International Tax Review’s EMEA Tax Rising Star Award for 2023.

“He will play a key role in developing our tax law practice in Ireland, and his addition to our team will enhance our ability to provide a seamless multi-jurisdictional tax advisory service to our clients on complex and cross-border transactions.”

Mr Dever added: “I am excited to join Pinsent Masons, a firm with a strong reputation and a clear vision for the future. I look forward to building the firm’s Irish tax practice and working with the talented team in Dublin and across the firm’s network to provide innovative and commercial tax solutions to clients.

“The importance of the ability to provide local tax expertise combined with a comprehensive international network, which gives access to market-leading tax experts from around the world, cannot be understated.”

His appointment follows further key hires to Pinsent Masons’ Dublin office last year. Partners Maureen Daly and Conor Durkin joined in November to lead the Irish intellectual property and funds teams respectively, and financial services litigation expert Lisa Carty joined in May to lead the Irish litigation practice.
