New partner Michael Spencer joins our Liverpool tax team

The firm is pleased to announce the appointment of experienced tax advisor Michael Spencer as a tax partner within our Liverpool office.

Michael joins us from Grant Thornton where he spent over nine years, most recently as tax director. Before this, he worked in the tax team at EY’s Liverpool office.

He will support clients with a broad range of tax advice with a particular emphasis on business restructuring, exit readiness, succession planning and wealth protection. Michael also has expertise in international business structures.

Working alongside tax partner Tony Reddin and senior tax manager Michael Court in our Liverpool-based team, Michael will also support our wider tax team in the North West region.

Andrew Matthews, partner in our Liverpool office, said:

“Michael is a hugely experienced tax advisor and will provide invaluable support to the entrepreneurial leaders and businesses that we advise right across Liverpool, the North West and North Wales.”

Michael added:

“I was excited by the opportunity to be part of dynamic firm with clear growth ambitions and a client-centred way of doing things that aligns with my own approach to supporting clients.

“My approach is all about spending time with clients to understand their business priorities and family wealth objectives, and then providing them with pragmatic and commercial tax advice that helps them to achieve their goals.”

Michael is originally from Peterborough but has lived in Liverpool since 2011. As well as being a member of the Chartered Institute of Taxation and former chairman of the Institute’s Merseyside branch, Michael is also a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland.

His appointment takes our tax team in the North West region to 55 members, which includes eight partners and seven directors. Michael now brings the total number of partners at the firm to 30.
