How Suwin is building a better working world

“I have led the tax advice on complex and high-profile insolvencies and assisted in a number of turnarounds where businesses have been restructured. In addition, I work with private equity houses and credit funds. Frequently, I visit China and am responsible for bringing together the right teams to assist Chinese and UK clients who invest or trade cross-border. I am helping clients to realize the value of their portfolios through my work on post-deal services.
