Grant Summers joins the Tax Resolutions team at Crowe
Crowe has expanded its national Tax Resolutions and Investigations team with the appointment of dispute resolution specialist Grant Summers with effect from 6 January 2020.
Grant Summers joins Crowe from a top six accountancy firm to advise on dispute resolution work involving corporate, personal and employment taxes. Bringing with him more than 35 years of experience in tax investigations and dispute resolution both for H M Revenue & Customs (HMRC) and in private practice, Summers is also an experienced tax litigator in civil and criminal matters. Based in Crowe’s Manchester office, Summers will work alongside Manchester’s Office Managing Partner Michael Jayson and the Tax Resolutions team nationally.
Michael Jayson, Office Managing Partner of Crowe’s Manchester Office commented:
“Grant’s background and experience is a great fit for Crowe, further strengthening our ability to support individuals and businesses across Manchester and the other Northern Powerhouse cities. Tax investigations and dispute resolution work can be hugely technical and complex, requiring specialist expertise. Grant’s experience will therefore be hugely valuable in helping clients to safely navigate this complexity and to resolve their tax affairs with HMRC. Our national presence and global reach means we attract the very best specialists like Grant, who has a strong understanding of the markets in which our clients operate and the challenges they have, to help them on their journey to success.”
Sean Wakeman, Joint Head of Tax Resolutions at Crowe commented:
“The challenges that businesses of all sizes are faced with today are wide and varied. Unless properly dealt with, dealing with the tax authorities can expose individuals and businesses to sizeable and unexpected tax liabilities. HMRC is also becoming more litigious, which means that having the very best of advisors like Grant is an absolute must. Grant’s appointment will increase our geographic reach and consolidate the first class service that we already provide. Our focus continues to be on delivering quality and value for our clients, and we remain at the disposal of our friends in the accountancy and legal professions to protect and defend their clients as well as our own.”
Grant Summers commented:
“Crowe’s expertise and reputation in the tax investigations and dispute resolutions arena is widely recognised and I am proud to be a part of it. In particular, I was attracted to the Crowe brand and its history of producing excellent results for its clients. I very much look forward to continuing to help to grow the business and working with our talented teams nationally.”
