Associate¬†Kevin O‚ÄôLoughlin¬†is ‚Äėa leading trusts practictioner on the Isle of Man‚Äô and plays a key role in Simcocks‚Äô team, which ‚Äėis able to meet tight turnaround times without sacrificing its ability to provide sound, pragmatic and well-reasoned advice‚Äô. The group is currently advising an Isle of Man-regulated trustee¬†which owns¬†a landed estate in the UK on tax liability issues, and the highly recommended¬†Amy Coole¬†assisted a wealth management company with the conversion of an existing structure into a private trust company.
