Dominic Stuttaford was the firm’s head of tax in Europe, the Middle East and Asia and is said to be recommended by Chambers UK and The Legal 500

Law firm Norton Rose Fulbright has announced the appointment of London partner Dominic Stuttaford as the new global head of tax. 

Before his appointment, Stuttaford was the firm’s head of tax in Europe, the Middle East and Asia, where he reportedly focused on the tax aspects of corporate finance and other finance transactions and structures, with a particular interest in the insurance, resources and technology sector. 

In addition, his experience reportedly includes the mergers and acquisitions of public and private companies, group restructurings, as well as other finance structures. He also has an active litigation practice in the UK and internationally.

Stuttaford is said to be recommended by Chambers Global, Chambers UK, Chambers Europe, The Legal 500 United Kingdom and Who’s Who Legal Corporate Tax.

The firm’s Paris partner Antoine Colonna d’Istria will reportedly take over from Stuttaford as the head of tax in EMEA, while London partner Matthew Hodkin will be taking on the role of London team leader.

Gerry Pecht, Norton Rose Fulbright’s global chief executive, said: “Dominic has a well-deserved reputation as a leader in tax law who excels in client service. He has been outstanding in his leadership of the EMEA tax team, and I am confident that he will deliver great results in this global role.”

Stuttaford added: “Our firm has a strong tax practice around the world, and I look forward to collaborating with this talented group. I will use this role to help our team to identify contentious and non-contentious tax opportunities with our clients. 

“In a time when the international tax world is changing rapidly, we provide a global offering to our clients which can help them navigate these challenges.”
