Profile

Simon Weil

Description

Simon Weil, private wealth partner at BDB Pitmans, advises on legal matters relating to wealth, charity, trusts, and tax planning. A highlight was advising the owner of a unique collection of Renaissance and Baroque clocks, in a private museum, ‘on the creation of a corporate charity to hold the collection for the public benefit’. He has also noted an increase in the forming of musical instrument syndicates ‘to buy a very valuable instrument for the benefit of a renowned soloist, who would otherwise be unable to afford it’.

Weil is the chairman of trustees of the Handel House Trust in London, and a trustee of the New English Ballet Theatre. Clients call him ‘a great champion for philanthropy’.
