James Hourigan, Partner

With over 25 years’ experience as an expatriate and employment tax expert. I have served clients of all sizes across many industry sectors and in a number of countries, including Ireland, South Africa and Australia. 

I have regularly assisted companies establishing a footprint in a foreign jurisdiction for the first time along with assisting more mature businesses on more complex global mobility assignments. I advise clients across all aspects of expatriate tax including assisting businesses on ensuring it and its assignee workforce are not only compliant from both a tax and social security perspective, but also taking advantage of available expatriate cost minimisation strategies. 

I lead our Africa Advisory Services Desk based in London, which has as its key focus to equip UK businesses successfully navigate their entry or expansion in to the African market.
