Charles Gothard

Description

‘The distinctive thing about Macfarlanes is that we have a reputation as the only firm that is known as a leader in both private client and corporate work,’ says Charles Gothard, the razor-sharp co-head of the firm’s family office group. It has a ‘disproportionate number’ of entrepreneurs as clients, who are attracted by a firm that can advise on personal planning while having a full understanding of their business should the need for restructuring arise, for example. ‘A curious theme’ in recent months has been the amount of international probate work landing on his desk, which demonstrates above all else ‘the importance of organising one’s affairs in one’s lifetime so you don’t leave a mess’, Gothard says.
