Huw Witty joins Shakespeare Martineau in London

 In Shakespeare Martineau

Shakespeare Martineau has welcomed new partner Huw Witty to its London corporate team, specialising in tax.

With almost 40 years’ post-qualified experience Huw advises on all areas of taxation, with key focuses on property, international and corporate finance tax, as well as the taxation of high-net-worth individuals. He also has experience in tax litigation. Huw joins from Ince Gordon Dadds where he was a partner and head of tax.

He will primarily be based at the firm’s London hub and, commenting on his new role, he said: “Shakespeare Martineau has a thriving transactional practice both inside and outside of London, as well as an impressive and highly-regarded corporate team across the UK. I am thrilled to be a part of this and I’m looking forward to building a successful tax practice.”

Huw has recently advised on the tax aspects of the formation and location of the holding company of an international hospitality group and a subsequent re-financing, a tax-efficient sale and leaseback of two property portfolios valued in excess of £130m, and a pre-sale re-organisation and sale of care home sector group of companies worth approximately £80m.

Duncan James, corporate partner at Shakespeare Martineau, said: “We are delighted to welcome Huw to the firm. Over the years, he has built a strong reputation in corporate tax, and his technical knowledge and broad experience will be a real asset to our team and clients as we look to enhance our transactional offering and cement our reputation in tax matters.”
