Michael is a trusted adviser to numerous, mostly European, private clients, their families and businesses.  He has experience advising on a wide range of UK and international matters involving tax, estate planning and succession issues.
  • Profile

Michael has developed a unique practice assisting private clients and their businesses which straddles both advisory and litigious angles. 

Michael's non-contentious practice involves advising individuals and families relocating to, leaving or with interests in the UK on the most appropriate and efficient tax and estate planning.  His understanding of the most common issues and criticalities in the various jurisdictions involved (especially European ones) enables him to better understand clients' needs and concerns and work seamlessly with the other advisers involved. 

The second main pillar of Michael's practice is of a more contentious nature, involving disputes involving entities and structures (trusts, foundations, companies), successions and tax matters. Michael also takes a pre-emptive approach, stress-testing clients' wealth planning structures and affairs in order to reduce the risk of future litigation.
