Secretary to James Baird

After completing her LLB (Hons) in Business Law at Guildhall University where she studied company law, taxation and related subjects, Ingrid studied at the Inns of Court School of Law and was called to the Bar in 1995, specialising in European Competition Law and International Trade.

 Ingrid’s first position was at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Edinburgh where she worked as a corporate tax senior in the Corporate Tax and Life Insurance Tax Department of the Financial Services Division as a tax advisor for large banks and insurance companies. This involved working as part of a team of three looking at tax planning strategies for multi-national insurance companies, leading often to international corporate restructuring for tax purposes. Ingrid was initially recruited to prepare a report to be disclosed during a tax investigation by the Revenue involving the tax treatment under the pre anti avoidance legislation of a box option, which was the underlying investment for the insurance companies guaranteed income bond.  

Ingrid was then asked to join Arthur Andersen (the 4th largest accountancy firm worldwide at the time) where she managed the tax compliance for a portfolio of clients which included a number of investment companies and a Japanese bank with branches in England.  

During her period at Arthur Andersen she co-wrote the Tax Guide to Europe, an internal publication that was sent to Andersen’s clients. This involved writing a chapter on each European country, summarising the corporate tax, income tax, indirect tax and capital taxes of each country. 

Ingrid then transferred to Treasury within Andersen’s (due to her prior experience of derivative instruments) where she worked as part of a team designing derivative products which banks and insurance companies used as the underlying investments for the products they sold their clients. 

Ingrid then moved to Numerica (the 15th largest UK accountancy firm at the time) as a Tax Manager focusing on owner managed businesses. There she was Head of Corporate Tax Planning and Stamp Duty. She also continued working in International Tax drafting reports for overseas clients with business interest in the UK. This involved proactive tax planning on behalf of the individual and the company, often involving international relocation and restructuring.   

In 2004 Ingrid converted to become a solicitor and has worked predominantly in law firms after a short spell lecturing Law at Brighton University. During her career as a solicitor Ingrid has worked as a Senior Associate and Head of Tax and Private Client in a Legal 500 firm in Central London.

 Ingrid regularly lectures on Trust and Taxation and Business Succession courses for the Society of Will Writers and The Association of Accountants as well as to a number of group of financial advisers.

 Ingrid initially studied piano and composition at Trinity College of Music in London and then went on to teach piano and woodwind at Eastbourne College and until recently, whilst living in Edinburgh, Ingrid gave regular piano recitals at the Edinburgh Society for Musicians.

 

In addition to his competence across a wide range of practice areas, Leon is an expert in Sale of Goods Law (relating to both business to business transactions, and business to consumer transactions) with more than 15 years’ experience in advising corporations in this area of the law; and he is a specialist in the duties of trustees-in-bankruptcy. He acted for the claimants in Oraki & Oraki v Bramston and Defty [2014] EWHC 2982 before Nicholas Strauss QC and Oraki & Oraki v Bramston and Defty [2017] EWCA Civ 403 before the Court of Appeal, which established for the first time that a bankrupt may have a personal cause of action against a trustee-in-bankruptcy in common law (e.g. in negligence, based on personal loss), and thus such a claim may be brought outside the scope (and limitations) of the Insolvency Act 1986.

 Notable matters also include Seaga v Harper (No 2) [2009] UKPC 26 in which Leon successfully appeared before the Privy Council for a former Prime Minister of Jamaica.

 Leon acts for a wide variety of clients, ranging of from listed companies and very high net worth individuals to modest owner managed SMEs. He is also equally comfortable acting for either insolvency practitioners, creditors, debtors or bankrupts in personal insolvency matters.

 Leon also has a strong sense of social responsibility and has been involved in a number of worthwhile efforts such as persuading the relevant authorities to reduce Air Passenger Duty to the Caribbean so that it matched, rather than exceeded, other similarly distant destinations; and advocating for the increase in the bankruptcy threshold from £750 to £5,000 in 2015 in order to prevent vulnerable persons being made bankrupt for relatively small liabilities, such as Council Tax.

 

Quang’s experiences have enabled him to develop his skills as an efficient and thorough solicitor, which he combines with a friendly and approachable style.

Quang is a Resolution Accredited Specialist with particular specialisms in financial remedies, children matters and domestic abuse. Quang sits on Resolution’s Standards Committee and he has contributed to Resolution’s Good Practice Guides and Guidance Notes.

Quang is committed to the constructive resolution of family disputes and follows Resolution’s Code of Practice that promotes a non-confrontational approach to family problems.

He acted for the claimants in Oraki & Oraki v Bramston and Defty [2014] EWHC 2982 before Nicholas Strauss QC and Oraki & Oraki v Bramston and Defty [2017] EWCA Civ 403 before the Court of Appeal, which established for the first time that a bankrupt may have a personal cause of action against a trustee-in-bankruptcy in common law (e.g. in negligence, based on personal loss), and thus such a claim may be brought outside the scope (and limitations) of the Insolvency Act 1986.

 Notable matters also include Seaga v Harper (No 2) [2009] UKPC 26 in which Leon successfully appeared before the Privy Council for a former Prime Minister of Jamaica.

Heather is secretary to Senior Partner, Tony Summers at our Bromley office.

After completing her LLB (Hons) in Business Law at Guildhall University where she studied company law, taxation and related subjects, Ingrid studied at the Inns of Court School of Law and was called to the Bar in 1995, specialising in European Competition Law and International Trade.

 Ingrid’s first position was at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Edinburgh where she worked as a corporate tax senior in the Corporate Tax and Life Insurance Tax Department of the Financial Services Division as a tax advisor for large banks and insurance companies. This involved working as part of a team of three looking at tax planning strategies for multi-national insurance companies, leading often to international corporate restructuring for tax purposes. Ingrid was initially recruited to prepare a report to be disclosed during a tax investigation by the Revenue involving the tax treatment under the pre anti avoidance legislation of a box option, which was the underlying investment for the insurance companies guaranteed income bond.  

Ingrid was then asked to join Arthur Andersen (the 4th largest accountancy firm worldwide at the time) where she managed the tax compliance for a portfolio of clients which included a number of investment companies and a Japanese bank with branches in England.  

During her period at Arthur Andersen she co-wrote the Tax Guide to Europe, an internal publication that was sent to Andersen’s clients. This involved writing a chapter on each European country, summarising the corporate tax, income tax, indirect tax and capital taxes of each country. 

Ingrid then transferred to Treasury within Andersen’s (due to her prior experience of derivative instruments) where she worked as part of a team designing derivative products which banks and insurance companies used as the underlying investments for the products they sold their clients. 

Ingrid then moved to Numerica (the 15th largest UK accountancy firm at the time) as a Tax Manager focusing on owner managed businesses. There she was Head of Corporate Tax Planning and Stamp Duty. She also continued working in International Tax drafting reports for overseas clients with business interest in the UK. This involved proactive tax planning on behalf of the individual and the company, often involving international relocation and restructuring.   

In 2004 Ingrid converted to become a solicitor and has worked predominantly in law firms after a short spell lecturing Law at Brighton University. During her career as a solicitor Ingrid has worked as a Senior Associate and Head of Tax and Private Client in a Legal 500 firm in Central London.

 Ingrid regularly lectures on Trust and Taxation and Business Succession courses for the Society of Will Writers and The Association of Accountants as well as to a number of group of financial advisers.

Receptionist

After completing her LLB (Hons) in Business Law at Guildhall University where she studied company law, taxation and related subjects, Ingrid studied at the Inns of Court School of Law and was called to the Bar in 1995, specialising in European Competition Law and International Trade.

 Ingrid’s first position was at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Edinburgh where she worked as a corporate tax senior in the Corporate Tax and Life Insurance Tax Department of the Financial Services Division as a tax advisor for large banks and insurance companies. This involved working as part of a team of three looking at tax planning strategies for multi-national insurance companies, leading often to international corporate restructuring for tax purposes. Ingrid was initially recruited to prepare a report to be disclosed during a tax investigation by the Revenue involving the tax treatment under the pre anti avoidance legislation of a box option, which was the underlying investment for the insurance companies guaranteed income bond.  

Ingrid was then asked to join Arthur Andersen (the 4th largest accountancy firm worldwide at the time) where she managed the tax compliance for a portfolio of clients which included a number of investment companies and a Japanese bank with branches in England.  

During her period at Arthur Andersen she co-wrote the Tax Guide to Europe, an internal publication that was sent to Andersen’s clients. This involved writing a chapter on each European country, summarising the corporate tax, income tax, indirect tax and capital taxes of each country. 

Ingrid then transferred to Treasury within Andersen’s (due to her prior experience of derivative instruments) where she worked as part of a team designing derivative products which banks and insurance companies used as the underlying investments for the products they sold their clients. 

Ingrid then moved to Numerica (the 15th largest UK accountancy firm at the time) as a Tax Manager focusing on owner managed businesses. There she was Head of Corporate Tax Planning and Stamp Duty. She also continued working in International Tax drafting reports for overseas clients with business interest in the UK. This involved proactive tax planning on behalf of the individual and the company, often involving international relocation and restructuring.   

In 2004 Ingrid converted to become a solicitor and has worked predominantly in law firms after a short spell lecturing Law at Brighton University. During her career as a solicitor Ingrid has worked as a Senior Associate and Head of Tax and Private Client in a Legal 500 firm in Central London.

 Ingrid regularly lectures on Trust and Taxation and Business Succession courses for the Society of Will Writers and The Association of Accountants as well as to a number of group of financial advisers.

 Ingrid initially studied piano and composition at Trinity College of Music in London and then went on to teach piano and woodwind at Eastbourne College and until recently, whilst living in Edinburgh, Ingrid gave regular piano recitals at the Edinburgh Society for Musicians.

 

In addition to his competence across a wide range of practice areas, Leon is an expert in Sale of Goods Law (relating to both business to business transactions, and business to consumer transactions) with more than 15 years’ experience in advising corporations in this area of the law; and he is a specialist in the duties of trustees-in-bankruptcy. He acted for the claimants in Oraki & Oraki v Bramston and Defty [2014] EWHC 2982 before Nicholas Strauss QC and Oraki & Oraki v Bramston and Defty [2017] EWCA Civ 403 before the Court of Appeal, which established for the first time that a bankrupt may have a personal cause of action against a trustee-in-bankruptcy in common law (e.g. in negligence, based on personal loss), and thus such a claim may be brought outside the scope (and limitations) of the Insolvency Act 1986.

 Notable matters also include Seaga v Harper (No 2) [2009] UKPC 26 in which Leon successfully appeared before the Privy Council for a former Prime Minister of Jamaica.

 Leon acts for a wide variety of clients, ranging of from listed companies and very high net worth individuals to modest owner managed SMEs. He is also equally comfortable acting for either insolvency practitioners, creditors, debtors or bankrupts in personal insolvency matters.

 Leon also has a strong sense of social responsibility and has been involved in a number of worthwhile efforts such as persuading the relevant authorities to reduce Air Passenger Duty to the Caribbean so that it matched, rather than exceeded, other similarly distant destinations; and advocating for the increase in the bankruptcy threshold from £750 to £5,000 in 2015 in order to prevent vulnerable persons being made bankrupt for relatively small liabilities, such as Council Tax.
