San Francisco-based BPM (FY16 net revenue of $85.7 million) announced Julie West will chair its corporate tax practice, allowing current corporate tax chair Bob Houston to focus on expanding the firm’s mergers and acquisitions, state and local taxes and research and development specialty services lines.

Earlier this month, BPM expanded its presence to Eugene, Ore., by combining with information security firm Info@Risk Inc., providing high-value comprehensive penetration testing and risk assessments for clients.

The firm’s corporate tax practice assists with domestic and foreign tax analysis and filings, controversies, income tax provisions, FIN 48 analysis for uncertain tax positions, tax credit incentives, state tax nexus studies and section 382 studies to determine limitations on tax attributes.
