What makes Addleshaw Goddard your choice as a private client?
Addleshaw Goddard is now the largest firm in the UK with a full-service private client facility. We are regarded as pre-eminent in our field and have a large team of excellent technicians. Indeed, two of our partners (Paul Howell and Alan Sturrock) have been voted, for the second year running, as part of the Citiwealth Top 100 private client professionals. Furthermore, being part of a large, essentially commercial firm, the private capital team has the ability to draw upon the expertise of the wider firm and its competencies.
The Legal 500 and Chambers, the two main legal directories, place Addleshaw Goddard as one of the very top firms advising on charity law in the North of England.
In an ever increasing litigious world, the team has been established to bring together knowledge and expertise from across the firm with members from our trusts & tax, litigation and pensions units.
Addleshaw Goddard is recognised as having one of the leading private client teams in the UK, advising high net worth individuals and charities.
A significant number of our clients require advice on international issues. We advise clients on their UK residence and domicile position and how this may impact upon their liability to UK taxation. We also specialise in estate planning and structuring for UK resident, non-domiciled individuals for whom significant tax planning opportunities remain available. Where necessary, we work with our network of international lawyers and offshore trust companies in order to ensure that a holistic approach is adopted to our clients' affairs.
