Reed Smith takes five from Dentons' tax practice
Five members of Dentons’ tax practice, including David Hryck, the US head of international tax, are leaving the firm to join Reed Smith, which will start a transfer pricing practice as a result of the move.
Jeffrey Korenblatt, who will be based in Washington, DC, David Mason, Sheila Geraghty and Theodor van Stephoudt, who are joining Hryck in the New York office, are also leaving for Reed Smith.
Hryck advises international families, entertainers, high-net-worth individuals, and multinational companies on their business transactions and corporate structures.
Korenblatt is a tax planning and transfer pricing specialist, who advises taxpayers on matters such as the tax-efficient structuring of domestic and cross-border M&A, reorganisations, spin-offs, redemptions and liquidations; supply chain management; the ownership and utilisation of intellectual property and the optimisation of intra-group service structures. He was with DLA Piper before Dentons.
Mason’s area is transactions, including M&A, capital markets, private equity, and corporate governance and strategic advising for start-ups in technology, real estate, retail, entertainment and fashion. He has concentrated on serving high-net-worth individuals and international celebrities. He was a counsel at DLA Piper before becoming a partner at Dentons. He was previously an associate at Sullivan & Worcester and Clifford Chance.
Geraghty is a counsel, whose practice focuses on international tax and transfer pricing for multinational corporations and van Stephoudt, an economist, provides assistance in the development of transfer pricing documentation, the planning of appropriate intercompany prices, and the valuation of assets for tax purposes.
