Tax law expert to oversee group that focuses on federal and state tax planning for multinationals

Boston, MA - (August 1, 2018) — Global growth expert Radius has appointed Jon Lamphier as managing director of its U.S. tax practice. Lamphier joins Radius from Discovery, Inc., where he served as vice president and counsel for M&A tax and tax planning. He takes over a team of CPAs, attorneys and business consultants that focuses on federal and state tax planning for multinationals.

“Jon’s experience helping private equity and corporate clients with tax issues at home and abroad is a real asset to our U.S. tax practice,” said Stephen Chipman, chief executive officer for Radius. “The global tax landscape is changing rapidly, and our clients stand to really benefit from Jon’s broad technical expertise.”

Lamphier has served in Ernst & Young’s transaction advisory services group and in Deloitte’s M&A transactions practice, as well as in a classified role in the U.S. Marine Corps. He holds a law degree from Fordham Law School and a Masters of Law in taxation from New York University School of Law. He is a member of the tax sections of the American Bar Association and the New York State Bar Association.

“Through my years as a tax advisor and business consultant, I’ve worked to bring solutions to companies looking to grow their businesses and succeed in an international landscape,” said Lamphier. “I’m enormously impressed by Radius’ tax advisory services: there’s virtually no area of taxation and no jurisdiction we don’t cover. I’m excited to bring my own experience to the mix and help my new colleagues solve problems, minimize risk and deliver value for our clients.”
