Daniel UgurPartner, Private Client
Daniel is a Partner in the Private Client department. He advises international individuals, families, trustees, beneficiaries, family offices and private banks on succession planning, personal taxation and trust law.
Taxes, family disputes and divorces can all affect a client's personal wealth and assets. Daniel works with clients to understand their aims and objectives and as a result puts together efficient plans to achieve these.
One of Daniel's particular areas of focus is on the succession of family businesses, where he works with the family to set up family governance measures to help succession planning run smoothly. He also specialises in advising families who are either based in Asia or looking to move to or from the region. As such, he is a regular visitor to Asia on business to service his clients there.
He has been ranked in Citywealth's Leader's list as a Prominent Figure. He is also ranked in the Chambers HNW 2021 guide for his work in private wealth law.
Daniel joined Forsters with the rest of the Gowling WLG London Private Client team in May 2017. Prior to this, he worked at Gowling WLG and its predecessor firms. He qualified at Thomas Eggar in 2006.
From growing a business to starting a family or handing over control of that business to the next generation, every individual has their own goals to aspire to. Our Private Wealth lawyers advise our clients throughout this family life cycle, providing the legal advice required for specific transactions such as purchasing a home or selling a business, whilst also advising on the long-term opportunities for succession and estate planning.
