Welcome to our new tax manager

We are delighted to welcome Lee Watson to the firm.

He joins us as senior tax manager and his appointment further strengthens our tax department as we continue to develop across the region.

We have some exciting events planned for the coming months and we are looking forward to having Lee on the team to support with these ideas.

Lee Watson, of Ingleby Barwick, Teesside, has gained extensive experience working with a number of large practices in the North East.

Lee, who will be based at our Darlington office, gained a first class degree in maths from Northumbria University before going on to pass his Association of Taxation Technicians and Chartered Institute of Tax examinations to become a Chartered Tax Adviser.

Alan Moore, one of our tax partners, said: “We’re delighted that Lee has joined us. This is a newly created senior post at Clive Owen and the aim is to give the tax partners support within the firm as well as helping to drive forward new initiatives.”

Lee said: “I’m looking forward to working with bigger clients and adding to the first class service that Clive Owen & Co provides.

“Hopefully I can make my mark with a few improvements and help our clients sleep a little easier by taking away their tax worries.”
