Nick Rucker



I run the Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth London and International team.

I have a background in corporate and private client law with particular interest in international structuring, investment structures, tax, family and private offices and investment of all sorts. I spent five years outside the legal profession as a banker at UBS in their UK Investment Banking team specialising in investment funds. I am interested in all areas of private wealth and making Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth the wealth advisor of choice in the UK.

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

My father who is a Judge.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

I am fascinated by building a new type of business in the private wealth space from within a regulated law firm that has professional ethics at its core (not something you can say about the majority of regulated financial services businesses).

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

I love spending time with my family, and enjoy all sorts of sport - whether participating or watching (cycling, skiing, rugby, cricket particularly) – and anything that could be called a “country pursuit”.
