Top Recommended Tax and Trusts Advisors
David Mellor was appointed partner at Dixon Wilson 20 years ago, and he’s developed an acute understanding of what clients appreciate when it comes to achieving their objectives. ‘I try hard to avoid jargon,’ he says. ‘We are dealing with complicated things. Clients have really got to understand what we are suggesting, getting to grips with it rather than just being accepting of the advice.’ This approach helps with complex issues in taxation, where Mellor works especially on inheritance and capital gains tax, corporate tax and VAT. Fortunately, he’s no stranger to problemsolving: he also has a degree in aeronautical engineering.
