Tax Advisor & Head of Private Client at Haines Watts

A tax professional for over 25 years, Nicola is Head of Private Client at Haines Watts London.  She takes a particular interest in helping clients make the most of their wealth during their lifetimes, as well as protecting it for future generations.  She is experienced in the taxation of cryptocurrencies and NFTs, which go hand-in-hand, with many clients involved in these digital forms of assets.  An experienced cross-border and trust adviser, she has also advised clients on such aspects of creating, buying and selling NFTs and cryptocurrencies.




Diversity of digital tools and media are now available as never before, as is the access to works of art and their distribution. As digital technologies continue to evolve, they will provide even more opportunities for new forms or techniques of artistic expression, the limitations of which are not yet in sight.

Belgrade-born artist living and working in London Misha works across several mediums, from sculpture to painting and crypto art. Characterised by vivid colour, optical movement and energetic visual cadences, Misha's visual work fuses a diverse repertoire of images and forms. 

Misha’s forms are undoubtedly female “a womblike form" as related to female anatomy, Misha weaves in symbolic elements of nature, such as birds, clouds, petals and structures from biology. Translating the three-dimensional world around her into flat colour and line and her own playful language.
