National firm Mills & Reeve has welcomed new partner Sarah Cormack from Withers. Cormack, who will be based in the London office of Mills & Reeve, specialises in tax, trusts and estate planning for ultra-high net worth international individuals and their families. She has particular expertise in establishing and advising on the holding of assets in multiple jurisdictions, the establishment of private trust companies and tax and structuring for clients who are both resident and non-resident in the UK.
She has a keen interest in advising international families and family offices on tax and governance issues. She is also a regular speaker at conferences in the Channel Islands, the Caribbean as well as in the UK.
Chris Belcher, head of private client at Mills & Reeve, said: 'We have seen a real trend in international families investing in and taking advice in the UK given the UK's reputation as a centre of excellence. Sarah’s appointment means that we are able to offer these clients advice on structuring their private affairs as well as the businesses in which they invest or the properties they are buying.'
Cormack commented: 'I am delighted to be joining Mills & Reeve at such an exciting time in the firm’s development. The focus on expanding their international offering, combined with the specialist sector knowledge they offer to their clients gives me a great platform on which to help develop a strong international private client practice.'
