Hunton & Williams has announced that Charles Elphicke has joined the firm as a partner and head of its tax practice in Europe, from Mayer Brown Rowe & Maw. His practice focuses on international tax structuring, mergers and acquisitions, and inward investment transactions undertaken by US businesses into the United Kingdom.

“Charles is highly regarded in the London market and has strong relationships with financial institutions,” said Martin Thomas, European managing partner of Hunton & Williams. “The firm’s international practice has generated an increasing demand for UK tax advice. Charles will strengthen the firm’s competitive position in the demanding London corporate and financial markets as well as enhance our ability to compete for cross-border work.”

“We expect the London tax practice to develop strong links to our US-based practices and to our other international offices,” added George C Howell III, head of the Hunton & Williams global tax practice. “He is experienced with many of the UK tax issues which will be helpful to the firm’s US REIT practice.”

“I am delighted to be joining such a great firm,” said Charles, “which has a truly supportive culture and collegiate approach. I am excited about the opportunities to build up REITs and other cross-border work.”

Elphicke received his law degree from Nottingham University and is a frequent lecturer, highly regarded public policy commentator, and widely published on tax-related issues. He is a member of the Corporate Tax Committee of the Law Society and a research fellow of the Centre for Policy Studies think tank.

The London office of Hunton & Williams opened its doors in 1999 and offers a range of legal services under both English and US law. Its lawyers practice as a global group and often form integrated teams with colleagues in other offices.
