Tom leads the firm’s Tax Policy and Technical Services team. He works closely with our client teams to deliver the insights they need to address their most complex business issues. 

Tom provides tax advice on a wide range of domestic and international corporation tax matters. He is highly regarded within the tax profession as a deep technical specialist, his extensive experience includes authoring the texts “Taxing GAAP and IFRS” and “Ireland’s General Anti-Avoidance Rule and the Rule of Irish law”; the latter was launched by the then former Attorney General Paul Gallagher SC.  He also was one of the contributors to the Irish Tax Institute’s texts of “Taxing Financial Transactions” and “Irish Tax Policy in Perspective” and was editor of its annual tax legislative publication “Direct Tax acts” for over a decade. He is also the current author of Bloomsbury’s leading texts of “Irish Income Tax (formerly “Judge”) and “the Taxation of Companies” (formerly “Feeney”) both of which are recognised as the most authoritative commentary on those taxes in this country and which are used regularly by tax advisers, accountants, lawyers, judges and others in the tax profession.  The latter contains a foreword by Minister for Finance Paschal Donohoe.  

In 2019 he authored Bloomsbury’s “Irish Capital Gains Tax” which was launched that year and contains a foreword by the former Tánaiste, Minister for Justice and Attorney General which refers to the book as “a masterly analysis of the tax, its incidence, its consequences, its administration, and its relationship to other forms of taxation”.  His most recent “Crisis: 25 business leaders on surviving in troubled times” was written with Covid19 as its backdrop. All royalties from that text go to Our Lady’s Hospice in Harold’s Cross and it contains a foreword by [former] Tánaiste Leo Varadkar.
