Paul Decker


Paul qualified in 1984, having taken a degree in Economics at Reading University. After training at a mid-sized firm, he specialised in tax at Ernst & Young before reverting to his ‘roots’ of general practice at NLP where he became a Partner in 1999.

Paul specialises in working with clients in the entertainment industry, but also manages a portfolio of clients across a broad range of sectors from manufacturing to professional partnerships.

In his spare time, Paul enjoys watching and playing football and is an avid fan of other sports including golf, cricket & rugby. He also enjoys eating out & socialising with friends, going to the cinema and theatre but first and foremost spending time with his family.
