His experience includes advising on the use of trusts for the preservation of family wealth, preparing wills and the administration of estates. George has particular expertise in the use of partnerships and companies in tax and succession planning.

George regularly advises international clients on remittance basis planning, the establishment and taxation of investment holding structures, and succession planning for those with interests in multiple jurisdictions. He also has experience in UK-US tax and estate planning.

He started his legal career at Slaughter and May in 2009 and qualified into its corporate tax group in 2011. George joined Forsters in 2015.

"The firm has a long history, which gives it gravitas, but it is actually quite young, which reflects in the outlook of its lawyers.  People like working with each other and that helps with the sense of camaraderie and mutual support."
