Miranda is a corporate tax specialist with over 30 years’ experience. She advises clients from early stage tech and life sciences companies to multi-national corporations operating in the pharma, tech and consumer products industries 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.
