‘High net worth individuals are usually cash rich but time poor, so they are very keen to have the right strategy as to how they can move around the world, while looking after their business affairs without too many complications,’ says Jurga McCluskey. An award winning immigration expert with more than 15 years’ experience, McCluskey leads the firm’s immigration team. She previously worked at Fragomen, Kingsley Napley, Gherson, and PwC Legal before joining Deloitte as partner and head of the immigration group in 2015. The Lithuanian lawyer’s private clients hail from the Middle East, China, Russia, Kazakhstan and the places in between. Today, she leverages the Big Four firm’s tax and accountancy nous to provide integrated immigration and wealth planning advice to global HNWs. It’s hardly all about business though, or even all about the HNW. ‘Most of my clients think about their children more than themselves,’ says McCluskey. ‘I’ve yet to meet a client who just talks about him or herself — it’s about their families.’ This has become increasingly important in light of Brexit, she says, and the ‘considerable shift in clients wanting to explore both UK and European immigration options’ as a result, with McCluskey ‘weighing up the pros and cons to a granular’ level. The biggest growth for McCluskey’s team has been Economic Citizenship programmes for HNW clients. Warm and engaging, she is fluent in English, Lithuanian and Russian: ‘That really helps when you work with high net worth individuals.’
