Graeme Kleiner

Spear's Review

The head of contentious trusts and estates at Charles Russell Speechlys ‘really knows his stuff and is fantastically good at soothing troubled waters’, says one industry colleague. Kleiner trained and became a partner at Withers, before being recruited by Speechly Bircham to head up its contentious trusts practice. He has been running the contentious trusts team at Charles Russell Speechlys since the firms merged in 2014. 

HMRC is becoming more aggressive in its tax investigations, says Kleiner, ‘viewing any form of tax avoidance as near tax evasion’. His view on the inheritance tax system is unequivocal: ‘Abolish it and look at alternative and more effective tax-raising measures.’
