The Burnside Partnership, specialist private client lawyers and tax experts in London and the South East, announces the arrival of Matthew Briggs, as a Partner, who will be heading up the new office in London.
Matt joins the team from the London office of top 25 international law firm, Osborne Clarke, and has previously worked in top-ranked city and leading regional private wealth teams. He specialises in personal tax, estate and succession planning for UK and internationally mobile individuals and their families, alongside the full spectrum of private client work, from the preparation of tax-efficient wills and family trusts to cross-border probates and the administration of complex estates.
Matt’s arrival comes on the heels of the opening of a new West End office in London’s Regent Street and The Burnside Partnership being shortlisted for ‘Boutique Law Firm of the Year’ at the prestigious The Lawyer 2021 awards, as well as Daniel Vernede’s recent promotion to Partner in the Oxford office.
Managing Partner, Della Burnside, says:
“We are really delighted to welcome Matt to The Burnside Partnership. He is a brilliant addition to our growing private client team and will strengthen the breadth and depth of our private wealth expertise, both on a domestic and international level. Matt brings with him a great deal of experience in multi-jurisdictional estate planning for high and ultra-high net worth clients with a global connection and has a keen interest in advising the owners of family businesses on important succession, governance and capacity issues, all of which will be of particular benefit to our practice.
Matt will play a key role in developing our ongoing presence in London and the South East, as we also continue to expand our teams in and around Marlow and Oxford.”
“I am absolutely thrilled to join The Burnside Partnership and work alongside such skilled experts providing exceptional client service in the private wealth industry. The recent awards and accolades earned by the team, including ‘Private Client Law Firm (Boutique)’ at the eprivateclient Excellence Awards 2021, highlight the firm’s outstanding achievements and calibre in the field. It is an exciting time to have come onboard as The Burnside Partnership expands its reach in the UK and invests in its international expertise.”
