I have worked on domestic and international tax disputes for clients over the last 12 years, on cases ranging from the High Court and Supreme Court to the European Court of Justice.

Having read law in both Germany and France before qualifying as an English Barrister, I regularly advise clients on domestic and cross-border tax issues in German and French.

I advise on all areas of corporate and personal tax and regularly act for corporates, high-net-worth individuals and ultra-high-net-worth individuals and Revenue inquiries (COP 8, COP 9).

I have particular expertise in cross- border litigation and investigations and regularly lead large international teams of lawyers on such matters. Speaking French and German fluently.

I specialise in European law and UK tax law relating to contentious UK income and capital taxes, especially in relation to trusts and non-domiciled individuals. I also advise on VAT and customs duty matters. I regularly provide cross-border strategic advice to corporates, trusts and private clients.

I am also a member of Fieldfisher's specialist IR35 team.

What others say…

Extremely bright and extremely capable ... able to drill down to the heart of the matter and present the client's case in a clear way to HMRC in order to achieve a quick resolution
