Philip’s practice involves the full spectrum of private client law with particular emphasis on inheritance tax and succession planning for mainly UK clients. His work can encompass wills, the creation, administration, restructuring and termination of lifetime trusts and the administration of estates involving complexities such as cross-border issues and business assets. Philip also advises on capital gains tax, particularly in the context of main residence relief and of divorce, as well as powers of attorney. According to Chambers (2017) those he dealt with described him as “…calm, and sufficiently reflective to keep things proportional”. Philip’s clients are individuals, who are frequently private company shareholders and directors, trustees and executors.
