Me in a minute

International taxation is my passion


International taxation is my passion since it allows me to assist individuals and corporations on a great variety of investment projects and related issues.

I particularly appreciate Withers’ international network as it is an excellent platform from which to provide clients with tailor-made advice on complex international cases and investment structures.

This also gives me the opportunity of working in other languages and familiarizing myself with different legal and tax regimes, which I really enjoy.
