We advise on all aspects of tax as they affect companies, business and individuals and have real expertise in minimising tax for corporate clients involved with M&A, equity and debt financing, restructuring and listings.

Advising individuals on everything from qualifying for entrepreneurs’ relief on a business disposal to avoiding capital gains tax on the sale of a property to ensuring that an asset qualifies for business property relief is a daily occurrence for us.


We work closely with our corporate finance team in one of the leading investment funds practices in the UK. We advise fund managers on setting up funds. We work with management and private equity houses on business buy-outs.


Universities and colleges take full advantage of our tax team, advising on employment taxes for staff and VAT and stamp duty land tax for real estate projects.

If you are looking to make an investment into the UK from overseas we will also advise you on the advantages that the UK offers as a location for holding companies of international groups.
