Rising private client star hired by Basingstoke-based Penningtons Solicitors
A RISING star of the UK’s private client sector has joined a Basingstoke commercial law firm.
Imogen Buchan-Smith, who has been listed in the 2012 Top 35 Under-35 list of private client professionals by Private Client Practitioner magazine, has joined the private client team at Pennington Solicitors, based in Basing View, from international law firm Baker & McKenzie.
Imogen advises both UK and overseas-based individuals on a variety of issues, such as general estate and tax planning, succession planning in the context of family-owned businesses, as well as cross-border structuring and conflicts of law.
She also supports financial institutions, including banks and trustees, on fiduciary, tax and trust matters, and is a member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP).
Lesley Lintott, head of Penningtons’ private client team, said: “Imogen has already established a strong reputation within the private client field, and she will play an important part in the continuing development of services offered to clients in Hampshire and the south east.”
Private Client Practitioner magazine’s Top 35 Under-35 initiative identifies, recognises and promotes those likeliest to be at the forefront of private client work in the future.
