Liz has over 20 years’ experience working in tax, particularly with entrepreneurial businesses and has spent the last 16 years specialising in share schemes and employee rewards.
In addition to her extensive tax experience, she also holds a master’s degree in Employment Law.
Having studied tax as part of her undergraduate law degree, Liz started her career with Coopers and Lybrand (now PWC) and then headed the tax department of a top 100 accountancy practice. In 2001 she joined Chiltern Plc (now part of BDO) to pursue her specialist share scheme interest in their equity incentives reward practice. Liz joined a specialist share schemes boutique as a director in 2009, before moving to Mazars in early 2014.
Liz provides clients across all sectors with advice that is not only technically accurate, but is also practical and commercial and above all effective in maximising shareholder value and minimising tax risk, from early formative stage to exit and beyond. She has a particular passion for entrepreneurial game changers and companies with international equity awards. Unlike many legal advisers, Liz is adept at working with the needs of an entrepreneur and can condense complex legal matters into a one or two page visual. Liz also provides practical tools to help clients and their advisers and investors with the dilution/reward decision making and the communication aids to optimise the efficacy of equity awards.
Liz also works with quoted international groups and smaller quoted companies and participates in the Quoted Companies Alliance share scheme experts group.
