An expert in innovation and investment incentives, Dunnachie is at the forefront of policy discussions and has contributed to the debate on R&D tax incentive reform.

Jason Dunnachie, Principal and Practice Leader of the R&D, said, “I am excited to have joined a firm with a true global outlook. Ryan’s approach to working with global clients and enabling teams to work across borders is something that other firms can only aspire to.”
