“Listen to your clients, say what needs to be said, and take pride in what you’re doing.”

Gil Abras

Director, Business Advisory

While Gil always brings something valuable to the table, his first priority is to listen to his clients, using their insights to get a complete understanding of the business.  This philosophy has stood him well.

Valuing honesty and direct communication, Gil tells it like it is… “not in a harsh way, of course!“ Teamwork is something he rates highly, adding: “I think it’s so important, and I’m very glad that’s the approach and culture at William Buck”.

Gil and his team have a client portfolio spread across a number of industries.  They help clients in all stages of the business cycle, including structure & tax planning, business strategy, growth advice, finance management and exit strategy. Having this range of experience enables the team to provide clients with a bird’s eye view of their business, enhancing their ability to create successful strategies for the future.

His approach to client-service involves developing strong relationships to get to the heart of what matters most to them. While Gil’s core expertise is based around tax and business advice, he works with specialist teams across the firm to ensure that all areas of his clients’ personal and business assets are looked after, focusing on wealth creation, risk management, succession and estate planning.
