Sophie is an associate in the private client and tax team.
Sophie advises clients on a range of wealth planning matters impacting successful individuals and their families. She advises high net worth individuals in respect of their tax, trust and estate planning, including clients who are either non-UK domiciled or non-UK resident, or both.
Much of Sophie's work involves advising UK resident and domiciled individuals in respect of their estate and lifetime tax and succession planning, including the preparation of Wills, Trusts (including Life Insurance Trusts) and Lasting Powers of Attorney and advising on the tax and practical implications of passing assets down to the next generation during clients' lifetimes. Sophie has also put in place a number of Family Limited Partnerships, which enable families to pass wealth down to future generations, while the wealth creators maintain control.
Sophie also advises clients who are intending to become UK resident, in relation to the statutory residence rules, the remittance basis of taxation and appropriate holding structures for UK property.
