She enjoys focusing on research & development (R&D) tax reliefs and corporate transactions to help growing business, as well as larger established businesses. Lisa started her career in HMRC before training with PKF Francis Clark and is now a chartered tax adviser with more than 17 years’ experience.
Lisa is part of the firm’s innovation and technology tax group, focusing on tax issues associated with intellectual property, R&D tax credits and the patent box regime.

Lisa has many years’ experience working with the marine industry and enjoys working with and leading the tax projects for Ineos Team UK. Lisa enjoys seeing clients develop their businesses through the use of R&D but also being able to help in maximising the benefit R&D relief can bring, to make sure businesses are able to reinvest and grow further.
