Institutional client review:

David is a rare talent in the private client sector, his intelligent and practical perspective combined with very strong technical knowledge and an open, enquiring mind makes him a formidable and reliable advisor. David is a lawyer in whom we and our clients routinely place great faith because he always delivers excellent results. David is widely respected internationally and I have no doubt his reputation will continue to grow. I hope to continue to work with him for many years to come.

David is a towering figure in the private client legal sphere. His combination of knowledge, clarity of advice and business acumen sets him apart from other lawyers in this area that I have worked with. He is also very personable with a quick wit and a wide range of intellectual interests outside of law.

Client work includes:

  • I have recently completed the sale of a US $75m super yacht, on behalf of a prominent Middle Eastern family.
  • I am currently working on a scoping exercise for a US $500m client to look at the viability of using a captive life insurance vehicle (offshore) for his succession planning.
  • I am working with a number of private banks to advise on the fiduciary implications of holding Bitcoin and other crypto assets within trusts. I am advising a number of clients on holding crypto assets in trusts and other structures, including advice on the complicated custody issues that this creates.
