HURST promotes James Thompson to tax partner
Accounting and business advisory firm HURST has announced two new partner appointments.
Ben Bradley and James Thompson, who work in HURST’s corporate finance and tax teams respectively, have been promoted from associate partner level.
James joined HURST in 2015 and has more than 20 years’ experience. He was promoted to associate partner in 2019 from senior manager.
He provides tax advice to family and owner-managed businesses and is a specialist in research and development tax credits which save his clients thousands of pounds.
James also advises a number of private equity owned companies and is well-versed in the tax challenges that arise as a result of the PE ownership model.
HURST partner and head of the tax team Liz Gallagher said:
“James has been an integral part of the tax advisory team for the last seven years. He has a passion for tax and uses his expertise to provide exceptional advice to our entrepreneurial clients. His promotion to partner is well deserved.”
