Andrew Lane, who together with Penny Elliott spearheads Forsters’ landed estates offering, has seen an increase in both development work and instructions on the advisory side, as well as a steady stream of transactions. ‘We have more than held our market share,’ he tells Spear’s. Lane notes a predominantly stable market. He continues to advise clients in relation to capital taxation and succession for the owners of large country landholdings. He is also adept at formulating tax-efficient structures for both onshore and offshore owners. The past year has seen him ‘complete a strategic plan for a multibillion European family’. The modest lawyer’s experience as a farmer gives him ‘a practical edge’, according to clients.
