Q&A

What has been the highlight of your practice over the past 12 months?

Using an international tax treaty to help save a business with several thousand employees that was in jeopardy due to onerous tax law changes.

What sets you apart from your peers?

I am often able to solve problems that my peers cannot because my advice is informed by a deeper understanding of international tax law and is also more creative and flexible.

What is your favourite quote?

"My only regret in life is that I have not drunk more champagne.” - John Maynard Keynes
