People Move thumbnail

DLA Piper has appointed Jessica Tien as a principal economist in Silicon Valley to focus on transfer pricing matters.

Tien, who joins from EY in San Francisco where she was a partner, will work on the planning and implementation of transfer pricing structures designed to achieve long-term business objectives while meeting transfer pricing compliance requirements.

In her previous roles, Tien has successfully concluded a number of supply chain planning projects advising on domestic and cross-border inter-company transactions flows and associated transfer pricing arrangements.

Tien has in-depth knowledge of China’s tax administrations, both at the municipal and headquarters level of the State Administration of Taxation. She has concluded a number of high-profile tax audits and advance pricing agreements on cross-border transfer pricing issues. Her expertise in this area has led her to become a frequent speaker at international professional conferences on the subject of China transfer pricing and Asia Pacific supply chain planning.
