To her UHNW clients, Ceris Gardner isn’t just an eminent solicitor: she’s a trusted adviser regarding international tax, succession and the establishment of UK and offshore trusts to art, immigration, philanthropy and heritage property matters. She’s seen plenty of churn, especially in the past 24 months: ‘The revenue authorities are flexing their muscles and are winning a lot of the cases,’ says the Spear’s award winner. The whole atmosphere has changed — the whole world has changed. What is driving clients now isn’t tax — it’s succession. How do we get our structures in order so that our assets can be passed on to the next generation? [Tax benefits] are no longer the driving force and haven’t been for a long time. It’s really stark now.’
