Charlotte Evans-TippingSenior Associate, Private Client
Charlotte is a Senior Associate in Forsters LLP's Private Client team. She advises high net worth international individuals, families, trustees, beneficiaries, family offices and private banks on estate and succession planning, trust law and personal taxation.
Her work focuses on the creation of wealth structures that are bespoke to the international individuals and families that she works with. This involves the creation and structuring of trusts, family governance, succession planning, residence, domicile and general UK tax planning work. Charlotte has particular expertise in advising clients from the Middle East in this field.
Charlotte also has experience in wealth protection, risk analysis and defensive structuring. This work includes undertaking reviews of existing structures in order to identify weaknesses that would render them vulnerable to attack by third parties, regulatory authorities or other family members.
Finally, Charlotte has experience advising on contentious trust matters, both onshore and offshore, including issues relating to the validity of trusts, claims for removal of trustees, investment disputes, division of trust assets and applications to the court for directions. She acts for settlors, trustees and beneficiaries.
Charlotte qualified as a Solicitor in September 2012 at Lawrence Graham LLP (now Gowling WLG) and joined Forsters with the rest of the Gowling WLG London Private Client team in May 2017.
As we move towards a period of post-lockdown global recovery, many wealthy individuals and families will be looking at how they can use their wealth to contribute to a more sustainable future for the benefit of their own families and others.
Given the numerous obligations and liabilities heaped upon trustees, many will be wondering what they should be doing during this Covid-19 crisis whilst it is not business as usual.
