I am passionate about tax litigation and tax controversy management. I am driven by the excitement of interpreting tax law and articulating before the Courts. It gives me great sense of achievement when legal arguments find favour with Court and clients are saved from the tax troubles. The intricate web of regulations and constant changes within tax law intrigues me, as I enjoy deciphering complex legal frameworks. The dynamic nature of tax law and its impact on businesses motivates me to explore creative business solutions that navigate through the intricacies of tax landscape.
