Ed supports clients on political and economic policy developments across a range of sectors, including leading Flint’s tax policy practice.
Before joining Flint, Ed spent eight years at HM Treasury advising ministers on a range of domestic and international policy issues. Most recently, he was part of the team responsible for Brexit customs negotiations where he led negotiations with a number of non-EU customs authorities. In other roles, Ed worked extensively on personal and business tax issues, oversaw government expenditure on international development and led on major reforms to the UK’s pensions and savings landscape. A particular highlight from his time at the Treasury was the introduction of three new tax reliefs for the creative industries and the Help to Save scheme for low-income savers.
At Flint, Ed has advised clients across a broad range of sectors on matters relating to economic and fiscal policymaking in the UK, digital regulation, media policy, and gambling reform.
