Mark Parrett

Managing Director, Head of Tax Insurance

Mark is the Head of Tax Insurance at HWF. He is a market leading tax broker and trusted advisor with over five years of experience in providing tax insurance solutions for funds/private equity, individual and corporate clients, and has worked on some of the most complex and high value policies placed in the tax insurance market.

Prior to joining HWF, Mark spent 10 years as a Tax Advisor for two of the ‘big four’ professional services firms.

Mark’s previous experience primarily consisted of advising on the tax elements of M&A transactions (e.g. tax due diligence, acquisition structuring, exit planning etc) for a variety of large corporate and private equity clients. Mark advised on transactions across a wide range of jurisdictions and industry sectors.

Mark also advised some of the tax insurance underwriters on the tax technical merits of the specific tax risks they were potentially looking to underwrite.

HWF’s ability to drive the process forward de-risks the M&A processes we are involved with. We count on their reliability and expertise, even where there are complex issues or challenging timetables

James Renahan, Travers Smith

We use HWF wherever the opportunity arises because they advise, structure and execute W&I insurance policies with great efficiency. Our trust in their service and process allows us to focus on our job resulting in positive client outcomes on their M&A deals

Helen Croke, Ropes & Gray

I am always happy to recommend HWF on deals; their in-depth experience of both M&A and the insurance market, combined with a pragmatic approach, leads to smoother processes, better coverage positions and ultimately happier clients
