Respected private client lawyer Peter Golden joined Linklaters in 2016 to head up its trusts team. He relishes the firm’s international reach and the ability to offer his expertise in a support role on a wide range of transactions. ‘With trusts in corporate transactions, the client needs trust advice provided in a very efficient, timely manner — they don’t want to have to go off and instruct another firm who may then have to sign NDAs,’ he says. ‘There are no other Magic Circle firms who have a specialist team doing this kind of work.’ He adds that ‘60-70 per cent’ of his work still revolves around helping wealthy clients with their personal structures and assisting in the management of their assets, affairs and estates.
