Claude specialises in all aspects of private client work including wills, trusts, powers of attorney, probate, tax and succession planning and charities. He acts for individuals, entrepreneurs, families, trustees, executors, beneficiaries, corporate entities, family offices, trust companies and other institutions supporting them. Claude trained at the City office of a leading UK law firm, qualifying in 2012. He joined the private client team in Penningtons Manches’ London office at the start of 2017.
His work involves advising on estate and succession planning, the creation of domestic and/or international trust and corporate structures, residence and domicile positions, the administration of complex estates and the creation and administration of charitable entities. This often requires complex tax advice with an international element and the co-ordination of guidance from advisers in other jurisdictions. Claude also has experience of contentious trusts and estates (both UK and international), involving the resolution of disputes affecting personal representatives, trustees and beneficiaries.
