Amanda Nelson

Senior Legal Counsel, Head of Private Wealth London Private Client

About me

I love the intricacies of dealing with complex issues, particularly where there is an international element. Along with the rest of the Private Wealth team, I provide clients with the level of attention and care which they deserve. I respect and prioritise the issues facing every client as being of paramount importance to them. I don’t take a nine-to-five attitude to my work, and understand that my role requires an enhanced level of responsiveness and attention.

With many years’ experience, I have worked with a number of families, family businesses, trustees, foundations and charities, along with individuals from both the UK and overseas with varying levels of wealth and complexity. I provide straightforward, pragmatic advice and am able to empathise with clients from all kinds of different backgrounds.

My expertise covers international and domestic matters including succession and asset protection, capital taxes and remittance tax planning, trust creation and historical trust issues, family business structuring, governance and succession, and charity and philanthropy

Outside work I have provided a home to many rescue dogs over the last 25 years, and my dogs and my family are my passion outside the office, together with music of different genres.

Top Tips & FAQs

Discover my top tips

Take care when choosing your advisor as it should be a relationship of longevity and trust

Give your advisor as much as information as possible, the work that we do for you will be far more efficient, both cost and time-wise, if we have all the pertinent facts from the outset

Engage your advisor as soon as possible – tax and succession benefits can be lost if we are engaged too late.
