In the member profile, Clint shares insights into his career progression, the challenges of being a tax lawyer and what the award win has meant to him: “There are many professional award schemes around but, as a tax lawyer, being recognised by The Tax lnstitute really means something and it's a great source of pride for me, and for the firm.”

The ability to put yourself in the client's shoes, to be a trusted adviser who can identify and achieve the best outcome, involves a range of other qualities, including business acumen, empathy, communication skills and unquestionable ethics".
