As a taxation services partner, Graham is responsible for private clients across our offices in the East of England, both ensuring that tax compliance obligations are met and providing added value and advisory services to private and corporate clients. He is also responsible for supervising and controlling all probate related and estate administration work within the firm.

In addition to shepherding his own clients Graham undertakes a variety of tax exercises across the wider firm, including:

Graham is able to take a holistic view and explain complex things in understandable terms. He enjoys finding solutions to clients’ problems which are not always readily apparent.

Outside the office, when he’s not being kept busy by his twin daughters, Graham can often be found in the kitchen or working on his martial arts.
