I have specialised in taxation since I became a solicitor and am a member of the Chartered Institute of Taxation. I have more than 20 years’ experience as a tax partner and have been head of tax at Richards Butler and more recently at Fladgate.

I am highly experienced in advising on the tax aspects of corporate finance, venture capital, property finance, property and capital market transactions and funds, and international private wealth.

I have also advised a wide range of sports clients including clients involved in motor sports and football, including planning involving image rights and tax efficient transfers of footballers. In addition I been involved in the resolution of a large number of tax disputes with HMRC for sports clients.

I aim to give incisive and innovative tax advice in a balanced and commercial manner and enjoy building strong business relationships with clients.

Outside of the office I relax watching football and reading Spanish literature.
