Career

Xavier's principal areas of work comprise personal taxation, trust and estate planning for individuals and trustees in the UK and overseas.  Many of his clients are non-UK domiciled, and much of his work has an international dimension.

Xavier advises UK domiciled clients on wills, trusts and personal taxation.  He has experience in advising those with family businesses or other business interests.  He works closely with the Real Estate team at Forsters to advise clients on the tax implications of UK property ownership and investment. 

On the international side, areas of particular expertise include pre-arrival tax planning for individuals wishing to become UK resident, remittance basis planning for UK resident non-UK domiciliairies, the establishment and taxation of investment holding structures, and succession planning for those with assets in more than one jurisdiction.

Xavier trained and spent the first four years of his legal career at Macfarlanes LLP, where he qualified as a solicitor in 2007.  He joined Forsters in 2009, and became a partner in 2013.
