I have practised as a chartered accountant for more years than I care to remember and my experience has given me the essential business skills to help my clients trade successfully. I focus on privately owned businesses where the interests of the owners are intertwined with the business – I see issues from both angles to provide a solid solution which is joined up. I know that the skills I bring are rarely offered by other boutique law firms but they do give the legal advice offered by Gannons a genuine edge.
- HMRC investigations
- Private company share valuations
- Tax planning
- Analysis of the accounting treatment
Why I love my job
I am given the honour of building on-going relationships with clients and help their businesses flourish. The firm is dynamic and straight talking which is a breath of fresh air for lawyers. The success of the firm brings a steady flow of very interesting work. I enjoy the blend of the legal analysis, tax advice and putting it into commercial reality.
The close and overlapping relationship that accountancy and law enjoy is now long established. Legal issues seldom arise in isolation to their financial and taxation counterparts, and the desire to achieve real commercial solutions through the collaboration of the two disciplines works well.
Chartered Accountant and principal of Jeremy Scholl & Co, Chartered Accountants. (I am engaged via my firm and am not a partner in Gannons).
