Profile

Clare Stirzaker

Description

Clare Stirzaker spearheads PwC’s ‘growing’ private client legal practice, where she looks after UHNW clients with complex estate planning, cross-border inheritance and tax matters.

Stirzaker says lockdown has pushed succession matters ‘up the agenda’ for families, resulting in an influx of enquiries. Next-gen discussions are popular too, she adds, citing a recent case where a family made the children directors of various companies but then discovered that they didn’t really understand the role. Stirzaker guided them on how to create more control over the situation, ensuring the family wealth would be stable in the event of unexpected succession.
