We’re looking at further expansion to deal with increased new instructions from the Leicester marketplace from both existing and new clients. Alexandra is a great addition to the team and will really add to our expertise across the region. Her appointment gives us a dedicated and permanent Private Client presence in our Leicester office and increases the depth of our tax advisory capabilities in that office, ensuring that we have the right resources in place to advise clients.”
