I have worked with Andra on a number of occasions and greatly appreciate her advice and intellect. Her expertise is clear and her manner sensitive. The term 'rising star' is all too regularly handed out in our industry but Andra really does deserve that title - I have no doubt that we will be hearing her name a lot in the future.

Andra's advice has been invaluable on numerous occasions. She is a pleasure to deal with, and always ready to give a general steer on things before formal engagement, which is hugely appreciated. This, combined with her depth and variety of knowledge/expertise makes her our first port of call for advice on tax and trusts.

Andra is an ex colleague who was a delight to work with, both at a personal and professional level. Her company and sense of humour on a daily basis are both missed.

Andra is always willing to help others, almost regardless of personal inconvenience, it would be a pleasure to work with her again if the opportunity arises.

Co-worker review:

As a director leading our tax risks practice I call on Andra to assist me in reviewing clients' affairs and wealth holding structures in the main, bringing her experience/knowledge and understanding to the table. I have found Andra to be consistently capable in terms of technicality. However, Andra's greatest gift is her approach/ability to strike a friendly chord with new people, e.g. other professionals like private client lawyers, financial advisers and smaller accountancy practices. I always get great feedback from my contacts following their interactions with Andra, saying that they felt comfortable with her and recognised her warmth and ability to understand large family businesses in the context of multiple generations trying to work together.

I work closely with international families, supporting them in managing their wealth and understanding their aspirations. I take a holistic approach when advising clients, typically focusing on longer term succession planning and family governance, often handling complex questions of cross border businesses and family dynamics with both financial and non-financial angles.

I started my career at Deloitte, in the Private Client Tax Team where I spent four years mostly advising non-UK domiciled ultra-high net worth individuals on structuring their multifaceted international tax affairs.

I am a STEP Affiliate, ACA qualified and was named as one of eprivateclient's Top 35 Under 35. I have subsequently achieved my STEP Advanced Certificate in Family Business Advising and a STEP Worldwide Certificate and I also enjoy writing articles for private client publications and have recently contributed to a podcast on family offices.

Advising a highly successful, second generation UK based real estate entrepreneur.

The client approached my team with a concern around the lack of a contingency plan in the event of an unforeseen interruption in the usual course of business. The scenario was considering the top management which consisted of four key individuals being “out of action” unexpectedly (two being family members) and the associated impact on the business’s efficient operation and the family.

I assisted by working with the client to undertake an independent, external assessment of the current business governance framework and devised a contingency plan to factor in unforeseen eventualities whilst setting out robust mechanisms to address them and ensure minimum impact on the business and the family.
