Q&A

What has been the highlight of your practice over the past 12 months?

Advising an ultra high net worth family on the establishment of a series of bespoke private trust company structures, to provide for the on-going ownership of a very substantial family business which was built up by the patriarch.

What advice would you give rising stars/new lawyers in the private client world?

It is very easy to get lost in the details when advising clients on international tax and succession planning. The rules are increasingly complex and the addition of multiple cross-border elements makes it more difficult still.

What is your favourite quote?
