Michael Anderson has been appointed as head of direct tax litigation at KPMG in the UK.
He joins from US law firm, Dorsey & Whitney, where he was a partner in their top rated tax litigation team, having specialised in this area for nearly 10 years. In this newly-created role, Michael Anderson will be responsible for launching a direct tax litigation practice in the UK, to complement KPMG's existing tax dispute resolution and investigations practice and its indirect tax litigation team.
Mike Linter, partner and head of people services tax at KPMG in the UK, said: “We have a well established tax dispute resolution and investigations team together with a successful indirect tax litigation practice and we see direct tax litigation as a natural extension to this.”
Michael Anderson said: “Tax litigation sits naturally within a wider tax advisory practice. Having this new direct tax litigation capability will enable KPMG to provide clients with a seamless service, should they need to resolve a dispute with HMRC in the Tribunal or higher courts. I see the challenge of establishing this new direct tax litigation service line here at KPMG as an enormously exciting opportunity. I am looking forward to working with my new tax colleagues to build a successful new and complementary business area.”
