DLA Piper UK promotes two to transfer pricing partners

People move big

DLA Piper has promoted eight tax lawyers to its partnership, including two transfer pricing specialists in the firm’s London office.

The two transfer pricing specialists are Joel Cooper and Randall Fox, who are co-heads of the international transfer pricing group at DLA Piper.

Cooper and Fox both have experience from the World Bank Group. Cooper was the technical lead on the provision of transfer pricing and international tax technical assistance, while Fox was a team leader responsible for leading transfer pricing case negotiations on behalf of the IRS.

Cooper has experience from EY as a senior consultant and has also worked for the IBFD, and is a guest lecturer at various universities.

Fox started his career at EY before moving on to Duff & Phelps, where he was vice president of transfer pricing. Fox then went on to become the APMA team leader at the IRS, a role from which he was seconded to the World Bank.

The two have extensive experience in all areas of transfer pricing and international tax issues, including transfer pricing documentation, advance pricing agreements, mutual agreement procedures, permanent establishment profit attribution, tax treaty application and transfer pricing dispute resolution.
