Clare Stirzaker

In 2022 Clare Stirzaker joined Boodle Hatfield after spending almost a decade leading PwC’s private client legal practice.

Known for dealing with complex issues, with a specialism in family governance and successions, she looks after UHNW clients with estate planning, cross-border inheritance and tax matters.

Stirzaker says the pandemic has pushed succession matters ‘up the agenda’ for families, resulting in an influx of enquiries since 2020. Next-gen discussions are popular too, she adds, citing a case where a family made the children directors of various companies but then discovered that they didn’t really understand the role.

Stirzaker guides them on how to create more control over the situation, ensuring the family wealth would be stable in the event of unexpected succession.
