Another past employee returns to the transfer pricing practice, with former senior manager Andrew Sliwa returning in Chicago, following spells as the Americas transfer pricing manager for EDS Corporation and as managing director at Ceteris. He has been advising on transfer pricing issues for 18 years.

David Kovar joins the BTS practice in Chicago, focusing on tax performance advisory. He joins from PwC, where he was the tax technology strategy leader in its tax function effectiveness practice as well as global leader of the tax technology centre of excellence.

The other tax partner promotions were Michael Medley in New Jersey, Justin Ransome in Washington, DC, and Clark Welton in California.
