Corporate tax

Our corporate tax team has both the technical excellence and deep understanding of market practice to advise on all aspects of corporate tax

Our corporate tax team advises on a full range of both domestic and international tax matters. These include mergers and acquisitions, transactional structuring, private equity transactions (advising both private equity houses and management teams), group reorganisations and demergers, structuring of debt funding and share capital, and joint ventures.

The team – which is led by Laura Board – works closely with our corporate and banking colleagues, providing commercial and pragmatic advice to clients while ensuring the tax solutions on offer are in line with business and personal needs.
