Legal Advisory Services
‘My aim is to help my clients navigate complicated legal issues, and achieve their goals for themselves, their families and their businesses,’ says Nicola Thorpe, a partner in Charles Russell Speechlys’ tax practice. ‘Clients place a great deal of trust in their private client advisers, and turn to us at some of the best, worst and most challenging moments in their lives. I take that responsibility seriously, and work hard to ensure my clients see me as approachable, reliable and trustworthy.’
Thorpe’s practice covers a wide range of private wealth matters, including international and domestic personal tax, trust structuring, succession and estate planning. She is well acquainted with the use of international structures for tax, succession and asset protection purposes and regularly advises HNWs, family offices and trustees on their UK and overseas options.
She says joining the firm seven years ago was a ‘major turning point’ in her career. ‘It was a privilege to join a firm which puts private wealth at its very core, and I was fortunate enough to become involved in some of the firm’s highest profile client relationships from the very outset.’ Since becoming a partner in 2016, she’s continued to build her own practice, while being inspired by the opportunity to work with some of the firm’s most senior lawyers. ‘It’s excellent to work with lawyers who are some of the leading lights in the private client industry, as well as being the nicest people I could hope to work alongside,’ she adds.
