We expand our private client legal services team in London
We have strengthened our private client practice following the appointment of Legal Services Director Simon Levine.
Simon joined the firm on 2 November 2020 and is heading up the legal team based in the London office. Previously he was a partner in the London team of the top 100 UK law firm Hugh James having built and managed his own legal practice, Claremont Richards, for a number of years.
Simon brings to the team a strong track record in advising wealthy individuals and their families on all aspects of Wills and probate, inheritance tax planning, trusts and powers of attorney. He is a solicitor and a member of the Society of Trusts and Estate Practitioners (STEP).
Commenting on his appointment Simon said: “Kreston Reeves has an outstanding reputation for its work in acting for private individuals and their families across London and the South East. The firm brings a holistic blend of legal, tax and financial planning that clients increasingly need. I am thrilled to be joining the firm at a time when the approach offered by Kreston Reeves has never been more important.”
Philip Lansberry, Partner and Head of Legal, comments: “We are delighted to welcome Simon to our team. His experience and technical excellence will be a real asset to our clients, and his entrepreneurialism will help grow our private client services.”
Andrew Griggs, Senior Partner, said: “Demand for the firm’s personal tax, legal and financial planning services remains high, reflecting the uncertain economic climate surrounding COVID-19 and Brexit. Simon’s appointment is important as we focus on guiding our clients to a brighter future.”
