Clients benefit from DWF’s close co-operation with its corporate and tax departments which enables the ‘very responsive and knowledgeable’ team to advise business owners, entrepreneurs and high-net-worth families on various tax and succession planning vehicles including those with international elements. Other areas of expertise include the preparation of wills, lasting powers of attorney and estate and trust administration mandates as well as probate matters involving business and agricultural assets. Team head Jon Gould ‘provides an excellent service’ and is particularly noted for his ‘first-class manner with clients’ and for ‘taking particular care to understand his clients’ needs in a very empathetic way’. He advised two high-net-worth families on tax-efficient wills, lifetime trusts and lasting power of attorney matters alongside the possible set-up of a family investment company, and handled the administration of an estate involving complex property ownership, pension and insurance matters.
