‘Practical, pragmatic, real-life advice’ is almost a personal slogan for Nimesh Shah, senior partner at Blick Rothenberg. ‘We have an open dialogue with all our clients and, given the complexity of the current political situation, they certainly appreciate the transparency,’ he tells Spear’s.
The down-to-earth Huddersfield fan has been heavily involved in discussions with the Treasury and HMRC, and his team had particular influence during the non-dom consultation. ‘We felt that we had a responsibility, both to the profession and to our clients, to ensure that we had an input on that,’ he explains.
Shah was encouraged to find that many of his team’s suggestions were taken forward into the final legislation. ‘We were able to emphasise the hugely negative impact that impractical, unworkable legislation has on clients. We are always looking to take the views of our clients forward into policy. Through us, our clients have a voice.’
This close involvement with the government has other benefits for Shah. ‘We’ve been at the forefront of how the government has been informed, and this has huge advantages in terms of the kind of information we can share with clients,’ he says.
