Kevin Glenn is a seasoned, technically strong tax professional who is a pleasure to work with.
Client, Chambers USA 2022

Kevin Glenn has over 35 years of experience in advising multinationals in respect of cross-border tax matters, including a particular focus on post-acquisition integration and tax efficient intellectual property related tax planning. He advises on the taxation of cross-border transactions with a view to assisting multinational corporations and investors in achieving their effective tax rate and cash tax planning objectives.

In doing so, Kevin relies on his extensive experience in the design and implementation of tax-efficient value chain and transfer pricing planning, including those relating to intellectual property deployment; tax-efficient cross-border financing structures; cash repatriation planning; foreign tax credit planning (including expense allocation and apportionment planning and foreign source income planning); GILTI and FDII benefit enhancement planning; BEAT mitigation strategy development and planning; and tax efficient cross-border acquisition and disposition planning. Kevin’s current and former clients include many life science and technology companies, as well as sovereign governments, foreign tax authorities, and foreign counsel. His background and experience as a tax lawyer, also licensed as a certified public accountant, position him uniquely to provide value-added tax advice on financial statement tax accounting impact, implications, or benefits.

In recent years, Kevin has spent increased time assisting clients in qualifying for domestic incentives (e.g., GILTI, FDII, section 245A, and Inflation Reduction Act related domestic tax credit planning) and managing their OECD (Pillar 2 and 1) related tax planning or increased tax mitigation planning, as well as representing a foreign sovereign government and tax authority in respect of their implementation of OECD BEPs and Pillar 2 measures.

Kevin also represents clients in controversy matters and acts as an expert witness in cross-border tax matters.

Kevin was a partner at a Big 4 accounting firm from 1995 – 2017, where he held various tax practice leadership positions including Partner-in-Charge (“PIC”) of the U.S. International Tax practice from 2004 to 2009, Deputy PIC for their National Tax practice from 2005 to 2008, Partner-in-Charge of Markets and Solutions from 2015 – 2017, and also served as a member of the board of directors from 2012 – 2017, the last year as the board’s lead director for that firm.
