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.

COVID-19: HMRC guidance on Company Residence, Permanent Establishment and related issues regarding the Economic Substance Test

Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC) published guidance on 9 April on the implications of COVID-19-related travel restrictions on a company's residence status. Such travel restrictions may force directors or employees to be present in the UK when they would not be here under normal circumstances. This situation raises concerns as to whether a foreign company may become resident for tax purposes in the UK because the central management and control (CMC) of the company might be considered to have moved here.
