After obtaining a degree in Economics from Royal Holloway, Layla joined Barnes Roffe LLP as a graduate trainee in 2002. Whilst training with Barnes Roffe, Layla particularly enjoyed the exposure to different industries, the variety of work and being given responsibility very early on.
Having successfully qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 2005 Layla knew she wasn’t ready to stop sitting exams just yet and qualified as a Chartered Tax Advisor in 2006. Following two years post qualified experience working on the firm’s largest clients, Layla was promoted to audit manager in 2007 and partner in 2013. Layla is now a tax partner at the East London Office.
In her spare time, Layla enjoys spending time with her family and attending boot camp with her friends.
