October 2019

Abbiss Cadres is further expanding its integrated tax team with senior addition Doug Stratton, joining the firm in October 2019 as a Director.

After spending over 20 years as a personal tax adviser for individuals and employers at a number of firms including Deloitte and most recently at UK Top 15 Firm, MHA MacIntyre Hudson, Stratton will be bringing his strong expertise in tax consultancy and compliance working predominantly for clients in the City of London financial services industry. Doug’s experience encompasses global mobility, and complex employment and private client tax issues servicing a body of corporate, private and senior executive clients.   

“Doug is an excellent hire.  Our tax team is a pivotal service in our multi-disciplinary offering, often being the point of introduction to clients who then buy fully into our wider expertise where the firm is able to deliver multiple skill-sets to help them achieve their goals both domestically and internationally.  Doug brings the technical skills our clients need along with sharp commercial instincts and a keen understanding of the power of our multi-disciplinary model for our target clients” said Guy Abbiss, Managing Partner at Abbiss Cadres.

Doug Stratton commented: “Abbiss Cadres is unique in terms of the integrating expert tax skills with its compensation and benefits, global mobility, employment and wider and HR-facing advisory, compliance and consultancy practices.  This client-centred, one-stop service delivery is what the clients I work with are increasingly seeking. I'm thrilled to be joining the team and looking forward to help them grow the firm in this exciting, changing market place.”

Bina Gayadien, Tax Partner at Abbiss Cadres, said: “Doug’s depth of experience and technical excellence further strengthens our services to both domestic and international clients. We are delighted that Doug has decided to join our multi-disciplinary team.”
