I concentrate on tax and structuring advice for international individuals and families.  My clients include very wealthy multi-national families, entrepreneurs and highly sophisticated investors from investment banking and hedge fund backgrounds.  Many of my clients are non-UK domiciled and are also not resident in the UK.  I advise on their UK tax status both on departure and coming to the UK as well as on the structuring of their worldwide assets efficiently and to provide a workable method of holding their wealth for future generations.  I also act for offshore trustees and private banks providing tax and trust advice on structures managed and administered by them.

I originally worked as a secondary school teacher in inner London for 6 years before re-qualifying as a solicitor over 20 years ago.  Initially, I practised in corporate finance in the City before moving into private client work.  I spent over 9 years in the Tax and Private Capital department of Lawrence Graham (LG) being promoted to partner in 2003.  I was also a partner in the private client department of Boodle Hatfield (2008 - 2011).

I am a CTA passing the ATII in 1997.  I have been listed as a Leading Lawyer, a Power Women and in the Honours Lists in the Citywealth Leaders lists 2015.
