Karen Campbell-Williams Head of Tax Manchester +44 (0)161 953 6312

I am a tax partner based in the North West focussed on growing mid-market businesses and their owners. I have been a member of the Partnership Selection Panel, interviewing partner-level hires and promotions for over 10 years. 

Every day brings a different challenge. One day I may be providing tax deal support to colleagues in corporate finance or acting as a consultant on a complex technical issue; another, I will be advising clients on tax compliance or maximising tax efficiency.

I work with a range of clients, from entrepreneurial start-ups to fully listed public limited companies to high net worth individuals. I have many PE backed clients and so have deep expertise in the particular opportunities and challenges they face. I work with a variety of charities and not for profit entities including registered providers. Whoever I am working with the aim remains the same: to give pragmatic, commercial advice that’s tailored to the client’s needs at each stage of their business life cycle. Seeing them unlock their potential for growth makes for trusted relationships and added value.

Outside of work my husband and I have five children who keep us busy and we are now moving into the next generation with two grandchildren arriving in 2019. I am a member of the North West Development Committee for the Prince’s Trust and a governor at Mount St Joseph in Farnworth near Bolton. I train regularly at the gym, love holidays and seeing the world and have recently taken up latin and ballroom dancing and joined a choir.
