I am an international tax leader with over 17 years’ experience advising large corporate businesses and the private mid-market both in the UK and overseas. I oversee the way we support our clients who operate globally, ensuring close collaboration with my colleagues in over 135 countries around the world. This includes supporting businesses with M&A transactions, cross border tax planning, business structuring, and exit planning.
I have a specific focus on supporting businesses operating in both the US and the UK to ensure tax risks are optimised and appropriately managed in today's fast changing BEPS environment. For example, I help organisations navigate through recent US tax reforms, and review and plan around the new UK anti-avoidance rules relating to hybrid tax mismatches and how this could apply to financing structures. I have also advised global businesses on IP holding structures, as they enter new geographical markets.
I lead a fantastic team of tax experts, based in Scotland who are passionate about working with dynamic, growing businesses and their owners. We work with companies across a range of sectors including real estate, food and beverage, and energy and natural resources.
Building relationships with people, getting to know their business better, identifying opportunities and making the relevant connections for them - it’s the part of my role I enjoy most.
When I’m not at work I try to spend as much time as I can with my young daughter and son, as well as trying to fit in as much sport as I can (more watching than doing these days!).
