David Kilshaw

Spear's Review

Private client partner David Kilshaw has more than 35 years' experience of advising HNW entrepreneurs, offshore trustees and non-doms on all aspects of their personal taxation. It is this extensive experience that saw him win the STEP Lifetime Achievement Award at the WealthBriefing European Awards in 2018.

Having begun his career as a solicitor, Kilshaw spent two decades as a partner in two ‘big four’ accounting firms, before joining Rawlinson & Hunter in 2019. In 2022 he left for Rothschild & Co, where he operates as managing director and head of private client wealth solutions, helping complex clients plug the knowledge gap in legal and tax matters.

His most notable work has included advising on the creation of family offices, pre-arrival planning for HNW senior executives and the sale of a large private company owned by an offshore trust. He has also appeared as an expert witness, including in the Mehjoo case on non-domicile planning.
