My clients look to me to assist them with the many complex issues which affect investment firms operating in the UK.

My speciality is financial services and I have been advising regulated businesses for nearly 20 years. I joined Blick Rothenberg in October 2019, having previously been a partner at Rees Pollock.

My clients look to me to assist them with the many complex issues which affect investment firms operating in the UK, from verifying they have sufficient regulatory capital to making sure that they are not falling foul of any of the specific VAT and taxation rules that are aimed at FCA-regulated entities.

I act for investment managers (including both hedge fund and private equity), corporate finance advisers, regulatory hosters and other businesses of varying sizes. These include both new start-ups and established firms with billions under management.

I also regularly conduct internal training sessions and am responsible for ensuring staff are up to date with any issues affecting our financial services clients.

Specialist areas

  • Audit and financial statement preparation services
  • Financial services, including regulatory reporting and regulatory capital issues
  • CASS audits and advising clients on compliance with the Financial Conduct Authority’s custody assets rules
  • Taxation of partnerships and companies in the financial services area, including knowledge of disguised investment management rules
