I am a corporate and international tax specialist with particular focus on large corporates and those with an international dimension.  Specifically my expertise covers advising multinational groups on a wide range of tax matters, technology, covering the consumer markets, leisure and manufacturing industries.

During my 19 years of experience of working in the tax field I have advised many companies on international tax matters and have a special interest in EU matters.  These include advising a technology firm on a multimillion pound EU discrimination case at the Court of Justice of the European Union.

I regularly present at tax conferences and have published numerous technical articles on international tax issues including .  I am an active committee member of the British Branch of the International Fiscal Association.  My team won Best International Tax Team at the 2012 Lexis Nexis Awards and Best Team in a National Practice at the Taxation Awards 2014.

Outside of work, I love spending time with my husband and children.  This usually involves being out and about, watching them take part in various sporting activities.  I also enjoy yoga which I have recently taken up.
