He joins Ernst & Young as a partner and is located in the firm’s Los Angeles office.

Kangail was formerly a tax partner with Rothstein Kass & Co., leading the Bay Area financial services tax practice.  A former partner at Deloitte, Kangail is also a partner at Ernst & Young, located in the San Francisco office.

Wauthy comes to Ernst & Young from Deloitte Tax’s Pacific Southwest asset management practice. He is a partner located Ernst & Young’s Los Angeles office.

“Michael Doolan, Mark Gutierrez, Paul Kangail and Eric Wauthy bring deep experience working with clients to help them retain and grow assets, enhance investment performance, mitigate business and tax risk and respond to regulatory changes,” said Michael Serota, global hedge fund co-leader and global asset management tax leader for Ernst & Young. “Their joining is also evidence of Ernst & Young’s growth on the West Coast in the asset management industry.
