RSM bolsters tax offering with four new partners

The mid-tier firm has boosted its tax teams, bringing four new partners in to its London tax practice

These new appointments include partners in the corporate tax team, Duncan Nott and Keith Thomas, as well as Mel Reed, who has moved from Bury St Edmunds to the London office.

Reed is the national head of the corporate tax team and has been with RSM for almost five years. Previously she was a tax partner at Scratton Bland and throughout her more-than-20-year career has also held senior roles at Grant Thornton.

Phil Partington has been brought into the firm’s employer solutions tax group. A specialist in expatriate tax, he moves from MHA MacIntyre Hudson where he was tax director, having been with the firm for four years. He has 20 years’ experience in the profession, having held roles at Frank Hirth, BDO, KPMG and Deloitte.

Nott, a transfer pricing partner, moves from BDO where he was a transfer pricing director after spending more than eight years with the firm. Previously he spent more than six years at Big Four firm PwC.

Thomas has almost 40 years’ experience in the profession and previously headed the FTSE 100 tax group. He has spent 27 years at partner level and will focus on driving growth for large corporate groups.

“From a technical and service perspective, RSM has never been in a better place to offer our clients commercially minded tax advisory services,” said Reed.

“I am excited about the opportunities we have to add real value to clients and continue to grow the London practice,” she added.
