Simon Weil, private wealth partner at Bircham Dyson Bell, advises on legal matters relating to wealth, charity, trusts, and tax planning. A highlight this year was advising the owner of a unique collection of Renaissance and Baroque clocks, housed in a purpose-built private museum, ‘on the creation of a corporate charity to hold the collection for the public benefit’. He also notes a recent increase in the setting up of musical instrument syndicates ‘to buy a very valuable instrument for the benefit of a renowned soloist, who would otherwise be unable to afford it’. Weil is the chairman of trustees of the Handel House Trust in London, and a trustee of the New English Ballet Theatre. Clients call him ‘a great champion for philanthropy’.
