PG Legal make tax less
taxing for property owners
PG Legal have taken their role in the North East property sector to a new
level through the addition of a market-leading tax lawyer to their team.
Simon Briton joined the rm in the summer and has already
helped shape the way in which a number of North East property
investors build their businesses.
Best known for his work with high growth companies, Simon
sees a lot of parallels between intellectual property and the
commercial property sector. “Business owners and investors want
to maximise growth while minimising risks where they can. The
tax incentives that I work with help get that balance right.”
Phil Dean has seen a boost to the rm’s relationships with
accountants and nancial advisers too, “Having a lawyer that
instinctively knows what our clients’ tax advisers are trying to
achieve gives us a head start over other similar sized rms in the
region.”
“Commercial property remains a key sector for PG Legal. We
continue to see an appetite for growth in this sector but with more
challenging circumstances beginning to emerge, there is an
important role for advisers. What sets us apart is that we actively
advise our clients rather than just drafting documents and bringing
Simon in adds even more into that mix.”
On the back of a move to bigger oces, a rebrand and several
key hires, PG Legal is making waves.
Simon has 20 years of experience at rms locally and nationally,
including Ward Hadaway, Bird & Bird and KPMG. He is an active
member of the region’s innovation community and recently led a
successful Innovate UK backed knowledge transfer partnership on
the future of technology in legal services.
