Elizabeth Bradley appointed to lead BLP’s tax department
International law firm Berwin Leighton Paisner (BLP) has announced the appointment of Elizabeth Bradley as its new Tax Departmental Managing Partner (DMP).
Elizabeth trained at the Firm and was made Partner in 2008. She was appointed Head of Corporate Tax in 2014 and works for many of BLP’s major clients including Tesco, Land Securities, BlackRock and Canary Wharf. Elizabeth has particular expertise in real estate tax but also advises in all areas of corporate taxation both in the UK and internationally. Elizabeth will join the Firm’s Board as its third female Partner member.
Managing Partner Lisa Mayhew commented: “Exceptional personal service and commercial advantage are what we promise our clients and our tax practice is a critical component in honouring that commitment. This is why we continue to invest in it and why I’m delighted that Elizabeth, who trained at BLP and knows our clients and business inside out, has agreed to lead the department and help us deliver on our Firmwide strategic goals.”
Speaking of her new appointment, Elizabeth said: “I am very proud to have played a key part in the growth and development of our tax department for more than a decade and enthused by how much more we can aim for and the continuous strides we are taking. It is an interesting time to be working in this specialism, particularly with work, clients and ambitions which are increasingly global, and I look forward to moving us ahead as a team and as a Firm.”
BLP’s is the largest and broadest tax practice in the City. The global team spans London, Germany, Moscow, Asia and the Middle East, and excels in delivering corporate tax advice on big ticket transactions, as well as wealth management advice to an increasing range of international private clients.
This appointment comes after the Firm announced the hire of Partner Marcus Dearle in Hong Kong in March. Marcus is one of Asia’s leading Private Client and Family Lawyers and advises high profile Ultra High Net Worth (UHNW) individuals and families on all aspects of private wealth.
