Neon grows M&A team with appointment of Dentons Partner

Neon announces the appointment of Andrew Thornton to the role of Underwriter & Solicitor - M&A Tax Insurance, reporting to the ‎Head of Tax Liability Insurance, Dawn Bhoma.

Andrew joins Neon, from his previous role as Tax Partner at Dentons LLP. Andrew brings with him extensive UK and international experience of advising clients on tax issues arising from M&A, private equity fund formation and restructurings. Andrew’s experience will enable Neon to offer clients specialist tax insurance solutions in the funds sector and a number of strategic trade sectors.
