Hogan Lovells Invests in London Tax Team with Second Leading Tax Hire This Quarter
11 October 2013
LONDON, 11 October 2013 - Hogan Lovells has hired Fabrizio Lolliri as European Director of Transfer Pricing. He will join the corporate (tax) team in the London office on 14 October 2013.
Fabrizio has nine years' transfer pricing experience and joins the firm from Alvarez & Marsal, a global firm specialising in turnaround and interim management performance, where he was Global Economic Specialist. Before that he was at France Telecom where he was Group Head of Transfer Pricing. Previous to this he spent time at Deloitte and KPMG. Fabrizio has acted as both a client and an adviser and also comes from a strong economics background enabling him to build his own financial models.
Commenting on Fabrizio's arrival, Fulvia Astolfi, global Co-Head of Hogan Lovells tax group said:
"We are seeing an increasing need from clients for transfer pricing advice, particularly in the current climate where there is a particular focus internationally on transfer pricing as governments look to protect their revenues in the context of the global economic crisis. Fabrizio's appointment allows us to provide the highest level of customised transfer pricing advice in the context of commercially-driven group projects and M&A transactions."
"Transfer pricing is a truly international discipline and Hogan Lovells has a first class global tax practice. Hiring Fabrizio, and also Rupert Shiers (London) and Gerard Neiens (Luxembourg) earlier this year, reflects our continuing commitment to grow and strengthen our global tax practice further."
Fabrizio Lolliri said:
"Hogan Lovells boasts a highly regarded tax practice which will now provide an excellent global and full-service transfer pricing offering to clients. The current changes in tax legislation and transfer pricing regulations (e.g. BEPS and new OECD Chapter 6) will bring more focus to the economic and legal aspects of transfer pricing and Hogan Lovells will be uniquely placed to support clients in this respect. I am looking forward to working with the team here in London and internationally".
Fabrizio has been listed in the '40 under 40 – ones to watch' ranking by Tax Journal (http://www.taxjournal.com/tj/files/TJ_40under40_ePDF.pdf) and is one of the main authors of UK Transfer Pricing 2012-13 (published by LexisNexis).
Fabrizio's arrival comes just four months after the hire of direct tax disputes partner Rupert Shiers (London) and shortly after the appointments of tax partners Gerard Neiens to the firm's new Luxembourg office and Cameron “Cam” Cosby to the Washington office.
