A likeable former corporate lawyer with an active sports and City-centric client base, Vokes advises doms and non-doms alike on ‘all aspects’ of wealth planning, focusing on tax-efficient investment structuring and investment by individuals and trustees into private equity funds, hedge funds and other alternative investment classes. She has particular expertise in insurance bonds and other wrappers. ‘My practice has always been at the more commercial end of private client,’ says this Cambridge-educated Cardiffian, pointing to a career rich with ‘very fast-paced deals, transactions and deadlines and very demanding people’. Her biggest clients tend to be family offices, which she says can be equally as demanding as big corporations. Vokes also retains a ‘fascinating’ base of football clients who found wealth ‘at a much younger age’.
