Top Recommended Tax & Trust Lawyers
A prominent adviser to international families and entrepreneurs – not to mention nervous non-doms looking to make sense of regulatory flux – Camilla Wallace is always in demand.
Approachable and engaging, she is currently advising a Turkish UHNW looking to find a safe harbour for his family wealth, and structuring a property portfolio in central London for a single family office from the Far East. She also recently became a co-attorney for the trustees of a deceased global rock star’s estate.
Does she sympathise with Donald Trump’s refusal to release his tax returns? ‘Yes and no,’ she says. ‘I wouldn’t want to publish mine, but if I was running for the President of the United States, then I would expect to comply. Think of Norway, where you can read your neighbour’s tax returns – it’s a cultural difference as much as anything.’
Wallace, who joined Wedlake Bell from Macfarlanes in 2007 and made partner six years post-qualification, is a founding member of Professional Advisers to the International Art Market.
Clients are effusive about the lively and proactive Wallace: ‘Camilla is my family’s superwoman – we don’t take any action without her guidance,’ says a UHNW Middle Eastern client.
