I advise on a broad range of trusts, tax, probate and succession planning issues, both domestic and international, for individuals, trustees and family offices.


I joined Fladgate eight years ago, working initially in the corporate tax team before focusing on traditional private client matters and work on a wide range of UK tax issues including succession planning and re-domiciliation queries. In my corporate role, I was responsible for creating tax efficient structures primarily for clients from the Indian sub-continent and the Middle East. My practice has a strong international element, regularly advising on cross-border transactions involving clients with dual-residency.

My client base includes HNW individuals and their families and I work closely with trustees and the directors of offshore companies, advising on the structuring of asset acquisitions and asset transfers.

I frequently work on large restructuring projects and am regularly called upon to advise on high-value property acquisitions and disposals with complex trust law and tax elements. One recent example being the de-envelopment of a property-rich offshore structure for one of our international clients.

I am half Russian, half Egyptian and was French educated at the Lycée in London. Having a mix of cultures allows me to relate to my international clients and the added languages are particularly advantageous when advising on international transactions.

I am a full member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) and am a member of the Private Wealth Group at Fladgate. Inclusivity & Diversity is very important to me and I am an active member of the Diversity Committee at the firm.
