Tax & Trust Lawyers
Company Size

Hayden Bailey has seen more complex succession and tax work, involving unravelling property holdings and helping entrepreneurs manage exits and set up family governance structures through trusts or family investment companies. That work belies an emphasis on preservation and communication, he says: ‘Clients care slightly less about getting reams of documentation… they want a lawyer who communicates succinctly and puts them first.’ Bailey is of a younger breed of tax advisers whose careers will be forged by the shift to disclosure, but he says there is still a case for privacy to ‘incentivise the next generation to create wealth and have fulfilment. Part of that goal can be shielding them from the responsibility of family wealth at too young an age.’
