Reshmi Manekporia provides UK and international individuals and their businesses with advice on the structuring of assets for succession and tax purposes. She has built upon her tax and private client expertise by developing Sharia wealth planning Solutions.

Reshmi is a Partner in the Private Client team who has significant experience advising clients on tax, estate planning and related matters. She advises international clients, their businesses and structures along with intermediary advisers, including banks and trust companies.

She specialises in planning involving multiple jurisdictions and where family succession and governance planning is important, whether for business or other assets. She ensures that structures holding investments or businesses remain tax-efficient and continue to meet the family’s long-term objectives, especially with respect to succession to wealth and succession to control.

Reshmi has considerable experience advising on taxation in a broad range of circumstances. This includes advising on investment assets such as real estate, trading and investment businesses, for individuals, companies or trusts.

Reshmi is recognised for her expertise in Sharia-based wealth planning, which is becoming increasingly important as common law succession tools are applied in Sharia jurisdictions and solutions are generally being sought for wealth preservation.

She ensures effective succession planning structures are in place where the Sharia is relevant, and works with local authorities, Sharia scholars and judges in the relevant regions to develop wealth planning solutions. She is experienced in dealing with Sharia in various jurisdictions from the GCC through to South East Asia.

Reshmi provides practical and incisive advice, coming up with solutions to suit her individual clients’ needs. She seeks to explain complex matters to clients in a straightforward, user-friendly way.
