‘‘

Having used Withers for my personal tax advice, Graham and Meriel were best placed to assist on my move to the UK to become CEO of the owner of the ‘Agent Provocateur’ brand. They not only gave clear, commercial, advice but were able to marry specialist employment and private equity expertise in relation to a bespoke incentivsation package. They were always available and reacted very fast.
