Is it possible to transition from a specialty planning / M&A tax role to a less specialized Tax Director role within industry? Or do you get stuck in the specialty role for the entire career?

Yes. Not uncommon for m&a tax to transition to overall tax director. I’ve seen it a few times. I’d assume it’s bc m&a tax is looked upon as the “top of the food chain” in tax.

M&A, in general opens up many doors because you’re exposed to so much frequently. Not sure about the super niche pieces, like EB.

I’m in SALT - takes great care and effort to showcase the facets of other areas of tax I know outside of the specialty. If you’ve kept skills broad it is possible, but not easy.
