A&L Goodbody has taken on the former head of VAT at KPMG Dublin to bolster its tax practice
New tax partner John McGlone worked at KPMG and as European VAT manager at the General Electric Group before setting up a Dublin VAT boutique. He will work under Peter Maher, Goodbodys' head of corporate tax. Maher said: "This is the first time we've taken on a full-time VAT specialist. But we've got such deal flow now, we took the view that we needed a full-time person." Other Dublin firms, including McCann Fitzgerald and Matheson Ormsby Prentice, have taken accountants into their tax practices, but McGlone is the first non-lawyer to join Goodbodys. The firm's tax department derives around 65 per cent of its work from internal referrals.
