Philip Munro

Spear’s Review

Philip Munro of Withers ‘doesn’t have a typical client’; instead, he ‘takes on whatever crosses [his] desk’. His practice is, however, consistently international; he has operated in Hong Kong, Singapore and various other jurisdictions in Asia. He also has a niche specialism in Sharia succession issues.

Munro manages the tax aspects of succession, liquidity events and cross-border matters for his UK and non-UK-based clients. All cases are high-value, often residing in the $100 million-plus range. Last year, he was involved in one of the highest value property transactions in London.

He also helps his clients achieve and maintain privacy, arguing that the people he represents seek discretion for legitimate reasons – especially when it comes to international clients.
