Me in a minute

I constantly learn from my clients while helping them achieve peace of mind

Having graduated from Cambridge, I also enjoy intellectual challenges. The intellectual demands of getting to grips with trust laws and cases, the ever changing tax regimes in countries like US, PRC and UK, the increasing regulatory and reporting requirements - the diversity and academic side of the private client practice always intrigues me.
