Spear’s Review

‘The internationalisation of private client work in London has been a big change,’ says Irwin Mitchell partner Alex Ruffel. ‘The world has become smaller in terms of communication and where people have their assets.’ 

Ruffel specialises in working with global HNWs who wish to relocate or exit from the UK, and the complexity of recent legislation means a move to London often poses interesting problems for HNWs. ‘Occasionally we get some interesting questions. Someone asked if their bodyguard could carry guns,’ she laughs.

Hailed by industry peers for her technical abilities in sophisticated tax issues, Ruffel advises on cross-border tax planning, estate planning and trust structuring.
