New Partner joins Pett Franklin

01 December 2013

Pett Franklin are delighted to announce the appointment of Stephen Woodhouse as partner to further strengthen their  team.

Stephen, a partner in Deloitte, the Big 4 accountant, will be moving from his practice in London to join Pett Franklin from 1 December 2013, to support the development of their national practice. Stephen, a lawyer who has previously worked at Slaughter and May and Norton Rose, brings a wealth of knowledge and experience across a range of organisations both domestically and internationally. He will be working alongside David Pett who co-authored “Employee Share Schemes”, the leading text on employee share schemes, and William Franklin, a leading adviser on the valuation, accounting and financial aspects of all forms of remuneration.

The addition of Stephen’s expertise into the firm will cement Pett Franklin’s place amongst the leading advisers on legal, tax and accounting in relation to employee share schemes, incentives and remuneration. The firm is a market leader in developing many aspects of share plans, demonstrated by the firm advising a wide range of corporate clients (including large multinationals listed companies and SMEs) as well as other lawyers, accountants and trustee companies and being retained by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills to draft new standard documentation for employee owned companies.

David Pett said “It is rare to recruit an individual of Stephen’s talents and expertise and we welcome the opportunity this affords to contribute further to our clients’ business success.”

Stephen Woodhouse said “My focus will be on continuing to guide clients through the minefield of the ever changing tax regime to deliver commercially relevant solutions. I look forward to joining such a hugely respected business.”
