Withers’ co-head of wealth planning Patricia Milner worries that London’s stable reputation might be a thing of the past. ‘Often now new legislation comes in and it’s very politically driven,’ she says. ‘Because it’s rushed through, the thought as to how it might operate and the implications aren’t given the same sort of detailed analysis. That leads to uncertainty — not only for practitioners, but also for clients — and uncertainty isn’t good for anyone.’ An experienced adviser to family business owners, family offices, landed estates and City professionals, Milner has spent a lot of time in the past year advising multi-generational, multi-jurisdictional clients on Sophie Dworetzsky family succession plans.
