Birtwell Leads Transatlantic Tax Group Annual SeminarJanuary 20, 2012
This the sixth annual conference organized by Ms. Birtwell, which was attended by over 90 UK tax lawyers from the leading US law firms in London. The aim of the conference is to share analysis and views on the technical details of the recently published UK Finance Bill 2012, and of various ongoing consultations on new tax legislation.
The main topics covered during the day included an update on CFC reform and the taxation of foreign branches; the new tax transparent investment funds proposals; current developments in Financial Services taxation (including the proposed Financial Transactions Tax, the Bank Levy and amendments to the Debt Cap Rules); there was also an enlightening session from Gibson Dunn’s Jeffrey M. Trinklein (a former colleague of our own Mr Rizzi) on Politics and the US Tax System and FATCA. All speakers at the seminar are prominent figures on the UK and international tax circuit.
The event has already received much positive feedback from delegates, praising the event to be, "as always, very worthwhile", “an excellent day’s worth of analysis” and "An excellent day - really well put together."
The TTG was founded in 2005 by Jan Birtwell as a professional discussion forum for UK tax lawyers practising in the London offices of US firms. The group has been instrumental in raising the profile in the London professional community of both O'Melveny's tax practice in London, and of the Firm as a whole.
