Alex Ruffel

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.

Adviser Profile

Alex specialises in tax, trusts and asset-structuring for high and ultra-high net worth individuals, families and trustees and is highly regarded for her work for clients with complex international affairs and for non-UK domiciled individuals.

Her clients come from across the world but she has significant experience in acting for families originating in the Middle East and Europe and for individuals wishing to relocate to or from the UK.

Drawing on 20 years' experience, she has a particular focus on assisting clients to structure personal investments tax-efficiently and planning for their successful transmission to the next generation through the use of trusts, companies and family governance structures.
