Description

Spear's Review

Harbottle & Lewis’s managing partner Glen Atchison is the firm's ‘go-to guy’ for UHNWs, HNWs, family offices and trusts for UK and international tax and succession planning, asset protection, and succession structures.

Clients are ‘internationally mobile and ‘globally minded’ and so look for adviser relationships ‘built on trust’, Atchison says. ‘They come to us because of our outstanding responsiveness and strong industry connections.

‘We combine the highest quality innovative legal advice with exceptional client service and are the leading provider to private capital and technology, media and entertainment clients.’ Indeed, the firm’s track record speaks for itself. Prominent clients include the band Queen, David Beckham and Universal Studios – in addition to UHNW individuals and public figures who rely on Atchison and his firm for many aspects of their personal and private affairs.

Adviser Profile

Glen Atchison is managing partner at Harbottle & Lewis and as Head of Private Client remains the firm’s ‘go-to guy’ for UHNWs, HNWs, family offices and trusts for UK and international tax and succession planning, asset protection, and succession structures. ‘Clients enjoy working with us – we match their ambition, outlook and approach. They come to us because of our outstanding responsiveness, strong industry connections and technical expertise. We combine the highest quality innovative legal advice with exceptional client service and build long term advisor relationships anchored in trust.’

‘We listen to our clients and we are proud that over 90 per cent of them responded that they received value exceeding fees paid’ Atchison says.

The Private Client department has ‘quite simply exploded in size in recent years’ and its consequent success mirrors that of Harbottle’s clients, a significant number of whom are entrepreneurs in disruptive technologies, clients associated with the creative industries and leading families, wealth creators and business owners.

‘Our clients are internationally mobile and globally minded. We believe that the modern attitude and approach of our Private Client team, combined with the services and expertise provided by our wider departments, is better placed to serve their needs than traditional private client practices’.

‘We’re generating major new work opportunities from both old and new client bases – blending excellent core private client, tax, trust and succession work with bespoke and creative advice and harnessing our unique set of skills. It’s a very exciting time for the firm,’ he says. Highlights include acting for a number of family offices and investment groups, working with them as trusted adviser in providing a full advisory service to their UHNW investors, families and individuals.
