Following a number of recent high profile appointments in to our London office, Birketts is able to offer clients both Immigration and Tax advice as part of its full service offering, making it a one stop firm for those seeking international private client expertise.

Having recently welcomed Partner Deborah Carrivick (named as a Leading Individual for Personal Tax, Trusts and Probate in the Legal 500 2021 rankings) and industry leading Legal Director, Jane Johnson, to the firm, Birketts’ Private Client Advisory Team is perfectly poised to assist international clients searching for the best solutions to their private property, tax planning and family matters.

On hand to assist entrepreneurial, professional and high net worth individuals, the team offers a range of services to non-domiciled individuals as well as UK based individuals with personal assets or business interests overseas.
