My paternal grandfather was a successful man but he left an unplanned legacy. His two marriages both produced children. The result has been a series of complicated relationships. With better planning and thought when writing his will I am confident he could have done better.
My mother arrived in the UK with no money, no friends and very uncertain prospects.
Their experiences have shaped my legal career. On one hand I have an inherent understanding of what happens when tax and estate planning is looked at on a narrow basis. On the other I am aware of the myriad of financial and cultural issues associated with international relocation.
I worked in the City for thirty years before setting up this business to offer advice on those areas that meant most to me.
Away from the office I sit on the Law Society International Taxes sub-committee dealing with inward and outward investment into and from the UK and the Law Society Capital Taxes sub-committee dealing with inheritance and non domicile issues.
