Winckworth Sherwood creates tax team following hire of partner Simon Newsham

Winckworth Sherwood has created a dedicated tax team following the appointment of tax partner Simon Newsham. Newsham joined the firm on 10 February 2014, having for the past seven years led his own boutique tax law practice, Newsham Tax Solicitors.

He was previously head of tax at Dorsey & Whitney and prior to that at Macfarlanes and KPMG.

Newsham brings with him a strong client following, acting for ambitious and fast-growing owner-managed, venture-capital-based and publicly listed businesses. He also works with international businesses, including UK subsidiaries of overseas groups and UK-headed multinationals, together with high-net-worth individuals, celebrities and overseas royalty.

He will work closely with Winckworth Sherwood’s expanding corporate and commercial team, its employment practice and its real-estate team.
