After a successful career as Tax Director with Grant Thornton, the entrepreneur in me forged a new path. A fellow of Chartered Accountants Ireland and an AITI-Chartered Tax Advisor, I wanted to partner with clients, offering my expertise with a highly personable approach. My tax specialisms span across multiple areas including:
- Succession planning
- Personal tax planning
- Corporate reconstructions
- Mergers and acquisitions
- Share buybacks
- Property transactions
- Revenue Interventions
I have the privilege of sharing my expertise by speaking extensively for professional bodies. I particularly enjoy this as it keeps me engaged with my peers and at the forefront of tax legislation.
When I am not advising clients, I write for professional publications and contribute to articles in the national press on tax matters. I am the sole author of ‘Capital Gains Tax: A Practitioners Guide’ published by Chartered Accountants Ireland.
As a Barrister-at-Law and a Chartered Tax Adviser, I bring a legal dimension to the team. Having worked in large accountancy practices and as a Tax Partner in law firm Philip Lee, I understand the value that the combined knowledge dynamic brings to the client, particularly in the context of transactions.
With 20 years’ experience, my expertise lies across both corporate and personal tax areas including:
- Mergers and Acquisitions
- Corporate Transactions, Restructurings and Mergers
- Succession, Estate and Retirement Planning
- Property Transactions
- Stamp Duty
- Revenue Interventions
- Tax Litigation
- Share Schemes
- Shareholder Exit Planning
I have significant technical writing experience as author and co-author of ‘Bloomsbury’s Irish Law of Stamp Duty’ and ‘Corporate Transactions: Tax and Legal Issues’ on behalf of the Irish Taxation Institute. To remain at the cutting edge of tax legislation, I regularly speak at conferences and sit on committees across multiple professional organisations.
I am on the Council and chair the Professional Services Committee for the Irish Taxation Institute.
As with all Corkonians, my roots are strong and I work and partner with many firms across the South of the country.
We at Circulo always want to talk to the right people. We are a growing firm with a desire to work with like-minded people.
