The clients in my portfolio are predominantly large family-run companies as well as their owners and associated family offices. To keep my mind fresh, I also advise a variety of promising young business owners and startups.
My relationships with my clients, both domestic and international, are often very close. Where others see complex problems, I see opportunities – opportunities that need to be examined carefully by specialists. You need to understand your client thoroughly before you know what solution best suits that particular company or family.
Besides providing tax advice, I work with a team of financial and legal specialists to offer our clients input, often playing a coordinating role as trusted advisers. An important part of our practice is helping our clients to set up and safeguard their domestic and international privacy and asset protection structures.
My first job as a tax consultant was with a medium-sized firm back in 2001. I spent most of my time there working in the ‘niche’ practice of family-run businesses and their owners. In 2007 I set up my own practice. While the emphasis was always on tax consultancy, coordinating the efforts of financial and legal advisers gradually developed into a significant part of my practice.
Working with a team helps me to retain my focus. I draw inspiration from our mix of domestic and international clients.
