Rust, who is Head of A&M Taxand Europe, said, “Stuart has a unique skillset, bringing together an impressive career within M&A and deep insight into how the insurance sector intersects with those processes. This hybrid insight will be invaluable in helping clients transact more effectively, and contributing to this next phase of expansion for the team. I look forward to working with him.”

Before joining A&M Taxand, Twinberrow was a Partner at Deloitte, where he spent 16 years, and latterly led the Big Four firm’s M&A tax team in London. Two years ago, recognising that tax diligence was increasingly moving towards the insurance sector, he founded and ran specialist M&A insurer Innoma Solutions, a business which advises on pricing and managing transaction risk for the private equity community.

Reflecting on his new challenge, Twinberrow commented, “The pandemic has accelerated M&A activity, creating new risks and opportunities for businesses looking to transact. At this pivotal time in the market, I’m pleased to be joining A&M – a firm which has M&A at the core of its DNA – and to have the opportunity to advise clients on some of the industry’s most challenging and exciting deals.”

Twinberrow’s appointment marks a time of significant growth for A&M Taxand in the UK. Other recent arrivals include Managing Directors Kersten Muller, and David Tuch, Nicolas Stratford and Jeremy Orbell.
