Nick Rucker



National Head of Tax, Trusts & Estates

I am the national Head of Tax, Trusts & Estates and I run the Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth London and International teams.

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?

I was inspired to get into law by my father who is a judge but it was the legal aspects of business and the individuals who own those businesses which really interested me.

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”.

    ONS Survey Results Report Increase In Bonuses Awarded For Second Year Running

    “The ONS figures suggest to us a shift towards ‘bonus culture’, or receiving a lump sum as bonus instead of a fixed salary increase. Either way, bonuses are not going to be disappearing any time soon, particularly for the private sectors. “With more people than ever receiving bonuses, it’s important to note how this lump sum is treated. For a start bonuses are treated as normal wages by the HMRC and so are subject to National Insurance and income tax. The higher the bonus, the higher the tax will be. “There are many investment options open to those lucky enough to receive a bonus, who might want to invest in a business, look into stock and shares, or use the money for their family such as paying for their children’s education or perhaps saving towards a house deposit or for retirement. “Whether considering short-term or long-term options, Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth advises that leaving a bonus in cash form may not be the most fruitful move. Seeking a solicitor’s advice on what to do with your bonus and to advise on any tax breaks available can help to make sure your bonus is working as hard as it can for you.”
