Lincolnshire, Ill.-based IPA 300 firm Mowery & Schoenfeld LLC (M&S) (FY21 net revenue of $22.1 million) has opened a Miami office to serve as the home base of its new international tax practice.
Leading the practice will be Fernando Lopez as newly admitted international tax partner and Ricardo Aramburo Williams as international tax principal and director of Latin American services. Together with their team, they will advise M&S clients on international tax planning and relevant tax jurisdiction laws, rules and regulations.
Lopez joins M&S with decades of experience in various roles at international CPA firms, including serving on the leadership team and in senior management. He specializes in providing international tax services, including cross-border tax planning and structuring. Aramburo Williams, meanwhile, brings nearly 20 years of professional experience to the firm, including serving as partner and services leader at international firms.
“In the prior decade, we have experienced an increase in U.S.-inbound business clients,” says MP Jeff Mowery. “Couple this with a rise in manufacturing returning to North America to mitigate supply chain and socioeconomic challenges, and we believe this new service line – led by Fernando and Ricardo – will be a critical piece of the future of M&S.”
