“DFDL boosts tax practice in Laos with key EY hire”
DFDL is pleased to announce that Jack Sheehan has joined DFDL’s tax team in Lao PDR.
Jack is a senior tax adviser with over 10 years’ experience in taxation, including three years in Laos. As the expatriate tax adviser based in Laos with the longest actual experience on the ground, Sheehan is one of the country’s most sought after tax advisers. He moves over from his key position at EY Laos, where he headed the local tax team.
Jack will be in charge of DFDL’s Lao tax team as Senior Tax Manager with existing tax partners Edwin Vanderbruggen and Jean Loi. He has experience in a wide range of tax advisory projects, with special emphasis on energy, mining, engineering, distribution and manufacturing. Jack is lauded for his excellent working relationships with the Lao tax authorities, his responsiveness and quality of work.
The high profile EY hire in Laos comes in the wake of DFDL’s coup in Cambodia and Vietnam where it lured long-time tax partner Jean Loi and key tax adviser Clint O’Connell away from PwC. In Thailand, DFDL recruited Herbert Smith partner Rashane Leerabandhu only last week, another example of DFDL’s forward leaning HR strategy.
