Robert Macro

Spear’s Review

‘A gentleman, a genius and a valued adviser’ is how one leading industry figure describes Robert Macro, who has set up several family offices for clients with net worth in excess of $2 billion. The head of Druces’ private client team has also been praised for his innovative use of investment strategy and has highlighted the need for family offices and offshore providers to address the misreporting around the use of international financial centres.

Internally, Macro has encouraged colleagues in his private wealth team to collaborate with those in the firm’s corporate arm in order to use international corporate structures for clients. Macro has significant experience with UK and international tax planning, trust matters, probates, tax disclosures and disputes for banks, trustees, HNWs and companies.

Adviser Profile

He has extensive experience across Private Wealth Law, including UK and international tax planning, trust matters, probates, tax disclosures and disputes for banks, high-net-worth and ultra-high-net-worth individuals, trustees, international companies, UK collection societies and partnerships. 

Robert specialises in complex tax planning for international and domestic clients. He leads Druces’ International Wealth & Fiduciary team, which specialises in securing low-profile and successful outcomes for high-profile family offices and their interests. He also has expertise in dealing with copyright in relation to film and television directors and the UK representative body of those directors. He has been involved in several notable matters, successfully and efficiently assisting clients caught up in the HSBC data theft in Switzerland, and advising fiduciaries drawn into litigation with a Middle Eastern state government following the Arab Spring. 

Robert also pioneered the successful use of various tax reliefs with claims for the remittance basis of taxation. Robert acts for trustee companies around the world, with an emphasis on trustees based in the jurisdictions of the British Virgin Islands, Switzerland, Mauritius, Guernsey, Jersey and the Isle of Man. 

In addition to being qualified in England and Wales, Robert was admitted as a solicitor of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court in 2005. He is also a member of STEP and the Association of Taxation Technicians. Robert is featured in Spear’s 500 as a Recommended Tax Lawyer; Citywealth also praise him as a lawyer who ‘always looks for solutions, is a creative thinker, tenacious in his approach and great to deal with’.
