Blick Rothenberg is a tax, accounting and business advisory firm that puts our people and client relationships first. 

Our Financial Services team (formerly Rees Pollock) has a deep knowledge of FCA regulations, sector-specific tax issues and structuring considerations. This means that you can be assured you have an advisor who not only understands how this all works but who can also identify potential issues.

Our team of 69 people have been working with private equity and venture capital managers and funds, wealth managers and advisory firms for over 30 years, providing high-quality, bespoke advice to help them establish and grow their business.

We act for more than 180 FCA-authorised firms, including some of the UK’s leading hedge fund managers, private equity houses and corporate finance advisers. Our key financial services clients include some of the longest established hedge fund managers in the UK and several of the largest in Europe.

Resume

I have been acting for small and medium sized businesses in the UK for over 20 years.

I joined predecessor firm Rees Pollock as a graduate and worked through the roles of trainee, senior auditor, and manager before becoming a partner in 2008. I joined Blick Rothenberg with the rest of Rees Pollock in October 2019.

My clients have typically been entrepreneurial firms, and have included start-ups, professional partnerships, small listed companies, and larger private businesses with revenues in excess of £400m.

I take great satisfaction on occasions where I can use my experience to help a client through challenging circumstances, whether that might be assisting an entrepreneur in setting up their first business or helping an experienced management team through a complex sale process.

I have been with Rees Pollock since joining as a graduate in 2005. I became a partner in 2018 and the firm was acquired by Blick Rothenberg in 2019.

One of our key aims is to deliver our work to our clients in as timely and efficient a manner as possible. We believe in a partner-led process to ensure that the work is directed in the most productive and risk-sensitive manner and any discussion areas and potential issues are picked up and dealt with as soon as possible.

Overall, I take great satisfaction in working with our clients through their audit and tax processes and advising them on the matters that arise through growth or generally as part of a business’s life cycle.

I joined Rees Pollock in September 2007, becoming a partner in 2019. The firm was then acquired by Blick Rothenberg in 2019.

I specialise in auditing and financial reporting, working mostly with UK incorporated companies and partnerships. I work with a wide variety of clients – including those in the property and financial services sector – and have significant experience of hedge fund and private equity managers and private equity and venture capital funds.

I understand the challenges facing the firms I work with, responding quickly as new circumstances arise and provide accurate and detailed advice.
