About Me

As an associate in the Corporate Tax team, I advise clients on a broad range of tax issues that affect them at different stages of the business life cycle.

From tech start-ups to established high street retailers, I advise businesses across an array of sectors on the tax issues that matter to them today and help them to structure their arrangements effectively as they grow.

Since joining Bird & Bird I have helped to structure and re-structure businesses for clients looking to grow both in the UK and internationally, often with IP and technically complicated VAT elements. I also regularly act on M&A and financing deals and have experience advising on joint venture arrangements and employment tax issues such as the off-payroll working rules. My work often has an international element, and I am used to collaborating with advisors across different jurisdictions to come up with solutions that work cross-border.

I became a tax lawyer because I like the challenge that this area presents. It can be a complex and often evolving field, and I enjoy working through those complexities to find the most effective solutions for clients.
