Former Eversheds London Head of Tax parks boutique firm idea and joins King & Wood Mallesons instead
King & Wood Mallesons has announced the appointment of former Eversheds tax partner, Clive Jones .
Clive, who was London Head of Tax at Eversheds, had planned to establish a boutique firm on leaving the Firm, offering both high-end structuring and mainstream real estate services to clients. Instead he has decided to join KWM as part of a team move with William Naunton (real estate) and Corneliu Medevi (structured real estate).
He will be starting in January and all three new hires will support the firm’s strategy focussing on structured, high-end real estate.
Clive advises on both direct and indirect tax and has particular expertise relating to real estate and finance transactions. In his role as Head of Tax he spent much of his time advising on structured real estate transactions and investment structures.
