I advise some of the firm’s largest family clients regarding their wealth structuring, succession planning and trusts. My focus is primarily on UK resident and/or domiciled individuals, trustees and beneficiaries, with a particular interest in cross-border taxation and succession issues affecting UK expats in France and Malta.
I also have experience providing tax and trust advice in the context of matrimonial disputes and pre-nuptial agreements.
In addition to the firm’s own Foundation, I have established and registered a number of charitable trusts and companies for clients.
I am a member of STEP (the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners).
I am listed as a Rising Leader in the Private Client Global Elite Directory 2022/23 which is a list of the world’s elite lawyers advising UHNW clients nominated by peers.
I was awarded the Gold award for “Lawyer of the Year – Partner” in the Citywealth Future Leaders Awards 2021 and the Silver award for “Lawyer of the Year – Partner” in the Citywealth Future Leaders Awards 2019. I was also selected as one of the 2019 Citywealth Future Leaders Top 100: Super Advisors and one of the 2017 Citywealth Future Leaders Top 100.
