DLA adds tax partner in Hong Kong

Patrice Marceau leaves HSBC to join DLA Piper as a tax partner.
DLA Piper has boosted its tax advisory practice with the hire of Patrice Marceau in Hong Kong. He joins as a partner from HSBCÆs wealth and tax advisory group.

Working alongside partner Daniel Chan, Marceau brings expertise in advising on local, regional and international tax issues for corporations and banks, tax planning for individuals and representing clients in tax litigation matters.

ôCompanies have to cope with fast regulatory changes to the tax regime, growing compliance complexity and the tightening of enforcement by the tax authorities,ö says Nick Seddon, DLAÆs Asia managing director. With this in mind, he adds, tax issues should be approached in a strategic way and not relegated to an afterthought.

Marceau is a Canadian-qualified lawyer and has advised on local and international tax issues in relation to commercial and corporate transactions, and has represented clients involved in tax disputes with Canadian tax authorities. Before working at HSBC he practised at Baker & McKenzie.
