Ceris Gardner

Ceris Gardner heads both the immigration and philanthropy offerings for her firm, Maurice Turnor Gardner.

The company is firmly international in its clientele, and Gardner is involved with every part of their journey in law, from choosing to make their home in the UK to how they can live within it. She advises high net worth individuals on the best targets for their giving, according to their values, and the most effective way of doing so, including setting up foundations and personal or family charitable trusts.

Succession planning is often her way of introducing the next generation to the family's philanthropic activity, and she assists with establishing a legal family structure. She told Spear's, ' When tension comes to the surface, it's how to deal with those to make sure that everyone feels they've been listened to and heard, and that their interests are being taken into account.  Listening and hearing is fundamental.'
