Gillespie Macandrew LLP focuses on providing complex succession planning and tax advice to families with businesses, land and estates, as well as handling niche issues around the Land and Buildings Transaction Tax (LBTT) and the Additional Dwelling Supplement (ADS). Elspeth Paget leads on executry matters and specialises in working with elderly clients, while John McArthur is the head of the tax advisory and returns team, and regularly advises clients on negotiated settlements with HMRC, particularly in matters involving Agricultural and Business Property Relief. In addition to a strong contentious background, Agnes Mallon has extensive experience in complex family tax and trust mandates, often with a cross-border element. Legal director James MacKinnon is recommended for his expertise in the formation, administration and termination of trusts, and the tax implication of the use of trusts in succession planning and asset protection.
