We are rated as one of the leading tax advisory practices in the City. We are not just tax advisers; we are commercial lawyers. As well as providing you with expert advice, we will implement the recommended structure for you. We want you to judge our work by the high standard of our delivery as well as by its technical excellence.

Our broad practice serves a diverse client base, ranging from listed multinational groups through to investment funds and high-net-worth individuals. Over recent years, our clients have instructed us to advise them on transactions and other matters involving some of the most challenging tax issues.

Much of our work has an international element. We regularly provide the tax advice for transactions with little or no connection with the UK. We can do this because of our cross-border experience and the relationships we have with leading independent tax practices across the world.

We strive to understand each client's specific business needs and design tailored structures to help them achieve their commercial objectives. We can add real value to your business.
