Mishcon de Reya has today announced the appointment of Jeffrey Lee, who joins as a solicitor in the firm's Private department where he will work in the Tax and Wealth Planning group.
Jeffrey was previously Head of Business Development at Barclays Wealth Advisory where he was responsible for the global new business strategy at the fiduciary arm of the private bank, before joining the private client department of US law firm Kaye Scholer. He trained at Withers LLP in London.
Jeffrey has strong private client experience and was listed as a Top 35 Private Client Practitioner under 35 by eprivateclient in 2012, 2013 and 2014. He advises on the taxation of UK residents and non-domiciliaries and on trusts and estates planning. As a Mandarin and Cantonese speaker he has a specific focus on clients from the Far East.
Andrew Goldstone, Head of Tax at Mishcon de Reya, commented: "Jeffrey is a great addition to our expanding Tax group and his experience working with those from the Far East is a perfect complement to the increasingly international nature of our private client work."
