Leading Cheshire law firm SAS Daniels LLP has appointed a tax planning expert to its growing Private Client team as it looks to expand its service offering.
Tax Planning expert Victoria Timothy, who will be based at the firm’s Stockport office, is the latest recruit to the Private Client team and joins as Associate Solicitor from London-based law firm Penningtons Manches.
Victoria will support the law firm’s service offerings which includes estate administration, trusts and wills. She also adds weight to the team’s existing specialism in these areas by offering advice on lifetime tax issues for business owners and farming families, such as Capital Gains Tax, succession planning and Inheritance Tax.
Commenting on her appointment, Victoria said:
“I was delighted to be offered the opportunity to join SAS Daniels and its Private Client team which is recognised in the Legal 500.
“I work with clients to spot issues with their tax planning, helping to mitigate tax and pre-empt and prevent any future problems. I will be working with both the Private Client and Corporate teams and I look forward to helping our clients plan for the future of their finances effectively.”
Justine Clowes, Partner and Head of the Private Client team at SAS Daniels, said:
“Our team is growing organically and Victoria’s experience will help us build on our expertise on tax-related issues.
“Succession planning for a business and tax related issues can be complex to navigate. Victoria will help clients understand the different paths they can take when it comes to mitigating tax in their business and for their families.
“Victoria is a very welcome addition to our growing team. And as we’re no ordinary law firm her depth of experience will add another dimension to our service offering.”
SAS Daniels’ Private Client team operates throughout Cheshire and its specialist expertise includes wills, trusts, estate planning, Lasting Power of Attorney and a range of services relating to elderly care.
