McDermott appoints London tax partner

McDermott Will & Emery has added a new partner to its London tax practice

Jonathan Ivinson joins the US firm at the end of April from telecoms company Carrier1, where he was vice-president of tax affairs. Head of tax Peter Nias said: “It's terrific news. The firm originally started off as a tax practice. His insight will enhance our current service, offering our clients a thorough appreciation of all regulatory, legal and commercial issues involved in their business decisions.” Ivinson's arrival will take the tax team at McDermott's London office to eight fee-earners.
