A new partner in our Private Client Team

We are delighted to announce the arrival of a new partner in our Private Client Team. Catherine Pugsley joined on 1 March 2021. She is a highly experienced private client lawyer who advises UK and international based private client families, estates and trustees on UK and international tax and succession issues and trust structures. Catherine originally qualified as a corporate lawyer with a top City firm before turning to private client law. She has lived in Italy for a number of years where she has run her own firm.

This is a hire which significantly bolsters the Firm’s international offering particularly in the areas of  cross-border estate planning and probate between the civil and common law jurisdictions. Catherine has also advised on the cross-border repatriation of heritage property and regularly advises domiciled and non-domiciled clients on the tax implications on their arrival in to or departure from the UK and on the creation of corporate holding and trust structures for the preservation and protection of assets and the associated applicable tax planning.

Managing Partner Stephen Dean comments, “The LBMW Private Client team is a growing and dynamic part of the Firm and we are excited about what Catherine brings in terms of experience, technical skill and international outlook. I am sure she is going to be a superb addition to the team”.
