Matheson has been named Irish Transfer Pricing Firm of the Year by the International Tax Review. Joe Duffy, head of Matheson’s transfer pricing practice, accepted the award at the annual International Tax Review European Awards ceremony in London last night.
Matheson was awarded the European M&A Tax Deal of the Year for advising on a novel acquisition in the pharmaceutical sector.
Matheson was also awarded European Consumer Products Tax Deal of the Year for advising on an innovative inversion transaction involving a major pharmaceutical business.
Turlough Galvin, head of the Tax Group at Matheson said: “We are very pleased to win these awards. The transfer pricing award reflects many years of hard work and dedication by our transfer pricing and tax controversy teams. The bespoke nature of the transfer pricing and tax controversy service that we provide to our clients has been very well received and is a clear difference between our practice and other practices in the Irish market. We expect the need for this service to continue to grow over the coming years. The deal awards are simply a testament to the quality of the transactions undertaken by our clients.”
The International Tax Review European Awards are widely recognised as one of the benchmarks for excellence in the field of international tax advice, and are celebrating their 10th year. Matheson has by far the largest tax team of any Irish law firm and represents many of the world’s leading international companies and financial institutions doing business in and through Ireland. Matheson is also the only Irish law firm to have partner-level tax expertise on both coasts of the United States.
