I lead the UK Restructuring Tax team and specialise in providing tax advice to distressed businesses or their stakeholders on all aspects of restructuring, refinancing or rescue transactions. I also provide pre and post insolvency tax advice in relation to formal insolvency appointments, as well as advising purchasers on the tax implications of acquiring businesses or assets in distressed scenarios, whether through consensual or non-consensual deals.
As head of the Restructuring Tax team, I coordinate all UK and international taxes relating to distress, including corporate, individual, VAT and customs duties, stamp taxes and employment taxes.
I have been a tax adviser for over 25 years, with the last 10 specialising in distress and insolvency, and have advised on a number of high profile cases across a variety of sectors, including a number of groundbreaking cases. Prior to joining Grant Thornton in 2012, I was a tax director specialising in restructuring and insolvency and, prior to that, I provided international and corporate tax advice to large multinationals.
Outside work, I am married with two young children and, when time permits, I am a keen runner. I am also the treasurer of a local charity, which provides emergency food assistance to people in my community who are experiencing food crisis.
