Me in a minute

The best part of the job is meeting clients and really getting to know them.

My work mainly involves helping international clients navigate through the various choices, opportunities and complications that can arise in protecting their wealth, business interest and families. I find this practice area particularly rewarding in the technical challenges it brings, as taxation and compliance regimes continue to evolve alongside a more globalised world of travel and business. I have always been more driven when working for private clients, where outcomes can make a real difference to people and their families.
