Private Client


Richard advises on all aspects of estate planning and personal taxation and focuses on cross-border tax advice. Many of his clients are individuals with a presence in multiple jurisdictions, and who originate from jurisdictions in Europe, North America and the Middle East.

Richard also advises on the establishment and management of international asset-holding structures, focusing both on international taxation and asset protection. He has extensive experience in planning for international families, entrepreneurs, finance professionals, and regularly advises clients in relation to complex HMRC enquiries and disputes relating to tax or succession matters.

Richard advises individuals, trustees, family offices and investment managers in relation to the tax treatment of complex structures and investment products, and has advised a number of banks and investment managers on the structuring of their investment platforms and the selection of appropriate investments for non-UK domiciled clients.

He spent six months in New York on secondment to a leading New York law firm, where he worked alongside US lawyers, gaining an understanding of US tax, trust and estate planning that assists him in advising US clients who are resident in the UK or own UK assets.

Richard is a regular speaker at wealth planning seminars and events and has written for Trusts & Trustees.
