Head of Bristows’ Tax practice and with over 25 years’ experience, Miranda is a corporate tax specialist advising clients from early stage companies to multi-national corporations on the whole gamut of tax issues that they face in carrying on their businesses.
Specialist areas include advising businesses, both UK-based and overseas, on the structure and negotiation of M&A deals and other forms of corporate/ commercial transaction such as joint ventures, financings, capital raisings, reorganisations, real estate deals and IT and IP contracts/licensing arrangements.
Advising on employee tax issues, share incentives, investment reliefs for growing companies, VAT and the taxation of innovation also forms a significant part of her practice.
Miranda advises on the full range of tax issues affecting clients in the charities and not-for-profit sector, and, in recent years, negotiating with, and litigating against, HMRC has also become a feature of her work.
