Jonathan Riley

Spear’s Review

Jonathan Riley is the head of Fladgate’s private wealth group, which advises wealthy individuals and families, as well as the trustees, family offices, companies and other structures that manage their affairs. While many of his clients are UK-domiciled, a large proportion of Riley’s practice is made up of non-domiciled clients who are linked to the UK via a temporary residence or investments. He has a particular specialism in advising business-owning families.

His advice includes tax optimisation and planning, wealth structuring and succession, family business governance, as well as contentious trust and estate matters.

‘There are many clients I look after that I admire; many are successful as a result of pursuing their goals and hard work,’ he says.

Adviser Profile

I advise wealthy individuals, their families and the institutions that advise them in respect of their private wealth. I have particular expertise in advising business owning families. My experience in both company and commercial law allows me to provide advice to individuals and families in a way that takes into account the commercial aspects of clients’ affairs. Private clients often think of their business and personal assets as very closely connected and understanding their interaction is important in order to advise comprehensively.

A lot of my work concerns the transfer of business interests from one generation to the next in a way that is tax efficient and meets their commercial and personal objectives.
