This Leading Specialist firm are currently looking for a Private Client associate with 4-6PQE to join their team in London.

Their Private Client department has two sections, the legal section and the trust and tax section. The legal section consists of solicitors and two legal executives (specialising exclusively in probate), and the trust and tax section comprises of qualified and unqualified trust and tax accountants and practitioners. These two sections work closely together on their clients' affairs so as to provide a seamless service.

There are currently seven partners, one associate, three consultants, six assistant solicitors and one trainee solicitor in the legal section of their department. In addition to dealing with the legal requirements of their clients this section is also responsible for the department's estate administration practice.

You will be advising both resident and non-resident individuals and trustees in relation to UK tax legislation affecting them and their investments, including:
*pre-immigration and emigration planning,
*trust distribution strategies,
*tax efficient asset structuring; and
*family governance.

You will also be expected to advise on and prepare Wills (and related testamentary documents) and all forms of trust documentation. As part of this you will need to advise on inheritance tax and capital gains tax issues (including potential mitigation strategies) and on trust law aspects of the work. You must therefore have a detailed and working knowledge of Capital Taxes (IHT/CGT/SDLT), a good knowledge of tax, trust and private client law generally and a strong background in Private Client work.

Ideally you will also have passed relevant STEP/CTA exams.
