We provide our clients with clear and pragmatic advice often working in conjunction with their other professional advisers. We also provide advice direct to other professionals.
We are used to working with corporate, HR and family lawyers and other professionals to provide a seamless service to their clients. We can be as little or much involved as suits you - and working directly with your clients or working behind the scenes. We talk the same language and provide expert drafting and advice.
On the breakdown of a marriage some of the favourable tax advantages are lost for the transfer of assets between spouses or civil partners.

Reporting non-resident capital gains
