Doug trained with major international firm Ernst & Young, qualifying as both a chartered accountant and chartered tax adviser and immediately specialised in tax. Although reluctant to admit it, he was a prize winner in the chartered accountancy exams – in practical terms, this means Doug is probably the smartest person you will ever meet.
Doug has specialised in complex taxation advisory work in the context of transactions, be they the merger, acquisition, disposal or succession of businesses. He has acted on transactions from the small to several hundred million deal value and draws some of his experience from being a partner in a corporate finance business as well as DSA Prospect. He also draws on his experience working with business owners to get the best value from their businesses.
