Profile

Simon Rylatt

Description

Spear's Review

A partner in Boodle Hatfield’s private client and tax team, Simon Rylatt seeks to provide ‘practical and helpful advice and clear and workable solutions’ for an expansive client of UK and international HNWs, as well as their families and trustees. This includes advising on wealth and estate planning needs, as well as more organic advice on the operation of family businesses.

‘I strongly believe that it is important to get to know the individuals and understand their objectives for the long term,’ he tells Spear's. His broad experience of wealth and estate planning, he adds, helps him to identify potential future problems for clients, as well as developing strategies to avoid or mitigate these.

Adviser profile

Simon specialises in advising individuals, family offices, trustees and trust companies in complex, high value tax, trust, succession, governance and family business matters both domestically and internationally. He also advises on disputes, often seeking to use his tax and private client expertise to resolve litigation involving ultra-high net worth families and / or their structures. He is aware that family relationships are often at stake and approaches the resolution of disputes with that in mind. He is highly regarded for his ability to engage with clients and other professionals in a sympathetic and constructive manner focussing on the legal issues and commercial challenges at stake.
