Daniel Ugur

Partner, 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.

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.
