Much of Alastair's work has an international dimension and often involves cross border succession and tax planning. Alastair's expertise includes advising on family trust and governance structures encompassing both business and private assets, tax efficient UK real estate investment structures, UK immigration, cross border estates and tax residency advice for those moving to or leaving the UK. In addition, Alastair is increasingly advising clients on legacy planning involving regional assets and has a particular focus on DIFC and ADGM foundation structures. Although Alastair's client base is drawn from individuals and families across multiple jurisdictions, he has a focus on individuals and families based in the Middle East, be they GCC nationals or global expatriates. Although there is no "typical" client, our clients' businesses and family assets often go hand in hand and Alastair works closely with colleagues across other areas of the firm to advise on structuring private and business assets. Alastair joined Trowers & Hamlins in October 2016 and has been based in the Middle East since September 2013 following 7 years working in London for a leading private wealth firm.
