Chris works extensively with onshore and offshore trustees and their beneficiaries, assisting with the ever increasing compliance demands they face. He is experienced in all aspects of forensic accounting, trust restructuring and is often called on to support the implementation of complex tax planning arrangements. He also has experience in dealing with the sometimes sensitive family issues inherent in such arrangements.

Chris is particularly enthusiastic about advising charities and their trustees . Recent work includes advising a fledgling charity on the development of its IT infrastructure, internal operating policies and appropriate structures for its investment and grant-making sub-committees. More generally Chris advises a portfolio of charity clients on their accounting, audit, tax and governance arrangements.

Chris is a Chartered Accountant and joined the firm’s Trust department in 1997, becoming a partner in April 2014. He has since played a pivotal role in its development into the Trust & Wealth Services department, expanding its services for Trusts and Charities, and establishing the firm’s Wealth Reporting Service.
