Dr. Niraja Srinivasan assists multinational companies and law firms with expert economic analysis and dispute resolution in transfer pricing for intellectual property and global supply chains, and in tax valuation audits. She has over 20 years of experience leading global transfer pricing strategy and risk mitigation for Fortune 50 companies in an extensive range of industries that include IT infrastructure manufacturing, software and digital services, consumer goods manufacturing and retail, energy services, and pharmaceutical/medical device manufacturing.

Dr. Srinivasan has deep experience in identifying, implementing, and defending cashflow-generative transfer pricing policies and operational changes in the context of corporate restructuring, M&A planning, post-deal integration, and privatization. She has negotiated numerous Advance Pricing Agreements (APA) in Asia, Europe, and North America, in addition to securing favorable audit settlements while maintaining trustworthy business-tax administration relationships. She has created world-class transfer pricing models for a variety of intercompany financial transactions including cash pools, term loans, swaps, and financial and parent guarantees.

Dr. Srinivasan joins NERA economists to help shape the future of global transfer pricing policy decisions and bring greater policy insight to NERA’s clients. She has published several articles on Pillar One of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Unified Approach and the base erosion and profit shifting (BEPS) framework.

Dr. Srinivasan is an Adjunct Professor at Texas A&M University School of Law, where she lectures on international tax risk management with an emphasis on “going digital” high-tech business models. She is Vice-Chair of the American Bar Association Tax Section’s Transfer Pricing Committee and spearheads the Committee’s educational outreach programs. Dr. Srinivasan is a frequent speaker at tax and finance conferences and writes on topics related to taxation and transfer pricing in the digital economy.
