Stuart Skeffington is a respected adviser on ‘all aspects’ of private client work, from complex onshore and offshore trust structures to tax planning for business owners (including exit events and corporate reconstructions) and advising charities. The head of the tax and trusts team is clear on the difference between what his firm offers, and what its better-known rivals do: client involvement. ‘We are a full-service firm with many partners having worked for years in the top City firms. Therefore we consider that we are able to offer City-quality advice, but with a more personal service than many of the larger City firms,’ says Skeffington. This has paid dividends, with the group’s private client team enjoying double-digit growth in 2016, when it last checked in with Spear’s.
