I have had a varied career in professional services, from co-founding tax specialists Williams Jefferey Barber in 1982 and heading up tax departments in a number of leading firms, to managing the corporate team of a national law firm and performing as Chairman of a property group that built over 800 commercial properties.
I joined SRLV in 2008 and now lead the firm’s tax planning service on corporate transactions and restructuring, as well as specialising in strategic tax planning for owner managed businesses and private clients. My interesting and diverse portfolio of clients ranges from music and film, theatre and fashion to sports professionals, retail and real estate.
Many clients have financial interests in the UK and overseas including extensive business, property, and investment portfolios. The variety of industries and individuals requires in-depth knowledge across a wide range of topics, from creative industry tax relief to family office and trusts as well as the complexities of non-domiciles.
Each client has their own structure and particular priorities so we shape our approach around this, identifying all possible opportunities to maximise their successes, both personally and in their businesses. I have known many of my clients for a long time and there is real trust between us.
