ProfileI am a highly experienced international financial structuring lawyer specialising in trusts, foundations, tax, company and business law. My clients are usually high net worth individuals (often with a significant public profile) or financial services companies and family offices that work with high net worth individuals. The matters I deal with invariably have an international element and are rarely concerned with only one jurisdiction.
I have previously worked in-house at family offices and also for international solicitors firms. I was one of the first barristers to take up Direct Public Access work. I am therefore very used to working with clients directly, understanding their needs quickly and finding practical solutions to their problems without complex legal jargon. My approach is entirely solutions orientated working mostly on solving complicated legal matters which do not involve the Courts. Indeed I avoid litigation if at all possible and I involve other specialists for this purpose only if needed.
Many of my clients are from a non-UK background, often from Eastern Europe/Russia/CIS.
In addition to the law of the UK, I am familiar with the laws of a number of independent financial jurisdictions including (non-exhaustively) Jersey, Guernsey, Isle of Man, Gibraltar, the Cayman Islands, Bermuda and the British Virgin Islands.
