Career Highlights

  • Negotiating and implementing a package of contingent assets comprising a guarantee and changes over multiple properties, so giving greater security and reducing the PPF levy
  • Advice to identify statutory employers and negotiating and implementing flexible apportionment arrangements, thereby facilitating a group re-organisation without any section 75 debt triggered
