He acts for a growing and diverse client base of high net worth clients including entrepreneurs, business owners, real estate investors, and individuals in the sports, entertainment, and art sectors.

His practice focuses primarily on estate and succession planning, inheritance tax and capital gains tax planning and mitigation, residence and domicile advice and related UK tax issues, asset protection and wealth structuring advice, and UK and offshore trusts and other structures.
Simon guides clients through the preparation of wills, typically incorporating trusts for tax/succession planning purposes, as well as to cater for complex family situations, and lasting powers of attorney.
