Profile

Ceris Gardner

Description

It’s been a busy year for Ceris Gardner, thanks in part to her rather broad brief. The private client lawyer heads both the immigration and philanthropy offerings for her firm, Maurice Turnor Gardner.

Like many in the profession, Gardner has observed how the pandemic has made more people think about estate planning - which has meant a raft of work on wills and lasting power of attorney. Gardner tells Spear’s she is also seeing pent-up demand from clients who are looking to ‘firm up their plans and actually come to the UK, take advantage of our remittance basis of taxation for non-domiciled individuals’. With Brexit done, she predicts a rush on investor visas from EU citizens.
