Hong Kong – 2 June – LAWFUEL – The Law News Network – DLA Piper Rudnick Gray Cary (“DLA Piper”) today announced the appointment of Daniel Chan, who will head up its Asian Tax Practice.
Daniel has over 11 years experience in PRC inbound investment and taxation. He worked as a partner at international and local law firms in Hong Kong and Toronto prior to joining DLA Piper.
Daniel specialises in a wide range of practices including foreign direct investment, mergers and acquisition as well as PRC taxation. His tax practice includes corporate and individual tax planning, incentives, M&A tax planning, indirect tax and customs planning, tax planning for services, employee relocation and executive compensation.
“China is a key market for multinational corporations and we foresee increasing demand for cross-border tax and custom services. Daniel’s expertise in China investment and taxation will enable us to provide our clients with unique solutions. As a result of the increasingly complex regulatory environment there is a great demand for Daniel’s skills,” said Nick Seddon, Managing Director of DLA Piper for Asia.
In addition to his tax practice Daniel advises companies and individuals on supply chain management, procurement, distribution, franchising, retail and after sales services.
Commenting on his appointment, Daniel said: “These are services are in growing demand by businesses operating in China, particularly foreign companies, which have limited knowledge of the market. By combining these services with taxation advice we are able to provide clients with a more holistic and integrated approach which can also be more tax-effective. I provide these business services as part of DLA Piper’s broader service offering which gives our clients a one-stop service for all their business needs as well as tax and legal issues anywhere, anytime.”
