Professional Biography

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 was awarded the Gold award for “Lawyer of the Year – Partner” in the Citywealth Future Leaders Awards 2021. I have been recommended in the Legal 500 with the comment: “very strong and capable of handling delicate matters for demanding UHNW clients”.
