The current private client team in Leatherhead consists of 10 people, and advises on all areas of individual tax planning for both UK and international clients. The wider Menzies office also covers all aspects of taxation, audit, insolvency, valuations and international business services for corporates and business owners.
Discussing his role at Menzies LLP, David Boyce, private client tax director, said:
“It’s an incredibly exciting time for Chris and I to be joining Menzies and we are looking forward to developing the firm’s already strong private client offering in this area. We both have an exciting opportunity here to deliver top-class work to the area from a firm based right at the heart of the local business community.”
