Claritas Tax has expanded its team with the appointment of five new recruits to its full-service tax business.
The firm said the new appointments bring in more than 50 years of collective experience from across the tax landscape. The five recruits include:
- Sarah Scala, joining as associate partner to lead its Tax Dispute Resolution (TDR) service line;
- Cass Graham and Gurpreet Pawar, joining as senior manager and manager respectively, in Claritas’ Corporate and Transaction Tax teams;
- Karen Litherland, as manager in Claritas’ Private Client team
- Michael Bell who takes up his position as tax trainee, working across all of Claritas’ specialisms whilst being supported to study for the prestigious ICAEW and Chartered Institute of Taxation qualifications.
Based in Birmingham, Manchester and London, it said the new joiners follow an “influx” of new recruits for the business at all levels, as the multi-disciplinary tax practice continues to implement its “rapid growth plans”.
Matt Hodgson, partner at Claritas Tax, said: “In an incredibly competitive recruitment landscape, to be able to announce five new recruits is evidence of how Claritas is continuing to expand its brand and reputation in the tax marketplace.
“With three further senior appointments joining us before Christmas, this will take us to over 40 advisers, making us a formidable team of multi-disciplinary tax specialists.”
Iain Wright, partner, added: “We are proud of the strong reputation we are cementing in the sector. Our success is down to our multiple service line approach which has resulted in us being able to build long-term partnerships with our clients. These five new joiners will enable us to better support our clients and I’m excited to welcome everyone to Claritas.”
