What can Virginia do for you?
Virginia specialises in advising landowners and business owners on a range of issues focussing particularly on asset protection and tax planning. She is the trusted advisor to many families; her clients include professionals and other high net worth individuals, often based in London or East Anglia. She is trustee of many family settlements.
Supporting your ambitions
Virginia recently advised a landed estate client (both in hand and let property) on an inheritance tax review, which involved closing down old trusts and repatriating an offshore trust, resulting in a simpler structure going forward designed to maximise reliefs from inheritance tax.
She enjoys helping clients explore their philanthropic goals and advising on suitable structures.
She recently advised the trustees of various settlements on a share company buyback and associated trust restructuring so that the shares benefit the successor to the company with different assets passing to other family members.
