She has a deep understanding of capital gains, business acquisitions, and restructuring, providing her with a unique insight into her clients’ business environment.
Commenting on the award, Linda said: “From my perspective, this award from the Tax Institute is an absolute privilege to receive. It is great recognition for the efforts of the CGW team I have around me and the clients I have the privilege of working with day-to-day.”
“The past 18 months have presented a unique combination of opportunities and challenges for clients and I am very pleased to have been able to contribute to their success throughout this time.”
