Il mio profilo in un minuto

My goal is to translate tax rules into a concise and simple message clients can understand

Although I spent most of my early career providing advice to large multi-national corporations, since joining Withers I have had the pleasure of representing a number of individuals in their business endeavors. I have found this challenge brings with it the reward of working closely with ultimate stakeholders with the opportunity to build long lasting personal relationships.

While tax law in general and the US tax rules in particular can be overwhelming and exceedingly complex, my goal is to translate those rules into a concise and simple message clients can understand.
