Helen Clarke

Partner

Biography

I am a partner in the Private Wealth Team in London specialising in Tax, Trusts and Estates. I advise high net worth individuals, families, trustees in the UK and abroad and beneficiaries or settlors of trusts. I also work with directors and shareholders in family run and owner managed businesses.

I have a particular interest in tax issues and strategic planning in relation to inheritance tax, trusts and estates. I advise on and implement structures to ensure a tax efficient and secure transition of assets and wealth to the next generation.

Through my experience I’ve also provided legal opinions for corporate entities and trustees and other law firms.

What inspired you to get into law?

I wanted to develop a career that would be both intellectually stimulating and also enable me to work with people. A career in law enables me to help individuals and families whilst also collaborating with other professions. The UK is the most innovative and exercising legal landscape.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?

It’s rewarding to ensure that hard earned assets are protected and structured to allow inter-generational wealth to be maintained.

The personal element of my role is very rewarding. I’ve built long standing relationships across multiple generations with individuals and their families and I provide support in what is often a stressful, emotional or difficult time.

What do you do away from the office?

I’m a proud mother of three children. I enjoy current affairs, taking advantage of the capital’s thriving cultural experiences, park runs and getting out and about with my dog.
