Keith Roberts

I am the principal at Egan Roberts, having joined Tony Egan as a partner in 1992. It is fair to say that my role within the practice is generally set by clients. It can vary from answering simple (or not so simple!) tax queries, such as “should I buy or lease my new car” to preparing a business plan or advising clients on how or when to sell their business.

I qualified with a small practice, back in the days when the most sophisticated piece of equipment in the office was an adding machine called a “comptometer”. I then had seven enjoyable years with Coopers & Lybrand, including a spell overseas in Zambia and an interesting assignment at Granada Studios.

Outside of work, I haven’t taken to wearing lycra and peddling up hill and down dale on a mountain bike (to be taken home by air ambulance) or spending four hours playing golf. I endure the occasional match at the Reebok with my three boys, keep my wine cellar (I wish) stocked up with suitable Rioja and Bordeaux and take time convincing Helen, the garden is “work-in-progress”.
