She advises high net worth individuals on UK tax, cross-border estate planning and the creation of tax-efficient asset holding structures. Although Mary advises individuals who are UK domiciled, she focuses in particular on advising non-UK domiciliaries and regularly assists with the creation, restructuring and winding up of complex trust structures.
Mary also advises on issues relating to UK tax compliance (including tax regularisation work) and the impact of the Common Reporting Standard.
Me in a minute
I really enjoy working closely with my clients to bring their long-term succession planning goals to fruition
At law school, I began to find the idea of personal taxation fascinating both on a conceptual and technical level. I was naturally drawn to private client during my training contract and knew within the first couple of weeks of starting in the department that it was where I wanted to spend my career.
Practising as a private client lawyer is immensely rewarding. I really enjoy working closely with my clients to bring their long-term succession planning goals to fruition.
Outside of the law, I have a long-standing passion for classical music and open water swimming, regularly competing in long distance charity events.
