Me in a minute
I work primarily for US people living in the UK (like me) whose lives involve varying degrees of complexity
I really enjoy the collaborative nature of what I do, whether it's estate planning or philanthropy or trust structuring. I am very familiar with the cross-border issues that our clients face and I work closely with my UK, Russian and Italian colleagues (among others) to come up with innovative solutions that work across multiple jurisdictions. My clients' lives are complex and my job is to help make things a little less complicated for them.
