Laurence is on the Board of a number of client companies, where his general commercial and tax knowledge is highly valued. He is a Director on a dozen hospitality related companies and, through Dixcart International Limited, provides UK Director services to several clients.
During his time at Dixcart, Laurence has assisted with the establishment and management of a number of the Dixcart offices, particularly Malta and the Isle of Man.
