“Everyone at Aspen Waite has been so friendly and welcoming, I already feel part of the team.

“After having a few years out of this sector, I am very excited to be getting back into it and to become a part of such a successful company. My role focuses on inheritance tax and capital gains, and it's great to be working with such varied and high-profile clients.”

Founder of Aspen Waite, Paul Waite said:
