Springfield, Mo.-based IPA 100 firm BKD LLP has admitted Brooke Simpson as an international tax partner in its national tax services division. Working out of the firm’s Nashville office, she will offer strategic tax planning services for U.S. and foreign multinational organizations and funds.
Simpson has experience with international structures, including operations and restructurings, Subpart F, GILTI, foreign tax credits, repatriation, permanent establishments, corporate reorganizations, transfer pricing and principal structures. She also brings significant private equity advisory experience on international tax aspects of the M&A process through IRS code section 304(a)(1) and (a)(2) transaction planning, IP planning and debt pushdown structures in the global tax restructuring process.
Before joining BKD, Simpson served as an international tax partner and practice leader at a New England advisory firm, and she has 14 years of experience with international firms. She has also spent more than a decade as an adjunct professor for University of Massachusetts-Boston, where she develops and teaches various international and federal tax courses at the undergraduate and graduate level.
“Brooke will be a great asset to our Nashville team and the greater region,” says Nashville partner Jim Regnier. “Having an international tax services partner in Nashville will help us build on established and new international client relationships.”
