Amanda Chapman (nee Nelson), formerly a partner at Taylor Wessing, has joined Cripps Harries Hall as a partner in the Private Client team.
Amanda is highly experienced in international tax and succession planning for non-UK domiciled individuals coming from jurisdictions such as the U.S., the CIS, the Middle East, Asia and Europe, with a particular emphasis on inheritance and capital gains tax, and remittance planning.
She also advises on a broad range of trust matters, both onshore and offshore, and has substantial expertise in estate and succession planning. Amanda has particular experience in advising entrepreneurial families on their businesses, family governance and philanthropic issues.
As part of her role, Amanda will be building the firm’s international tax planning expertise, working closely with the Cripps International Corporate Group, led by partner, Olivier Morel.
Amanda commented on her appointment:
“I am excited to be joining Cripps at such an interesting time in its evolution, as it is about to merge with Vertex Law. It has a formidable Private Client practice, and I am very much looking forward to building on its already strong profile in international tax planning”.
Head of Private Client at Cripps, Myles McIntosh added:
“We are extremely pleased to have Amanda join us. With the increase in our international client base, having someone with Amanda’s tax planning experience on board will help to further strengthen our expertise in this area”.
Amanda’s appointment comes in the wake of that of Philip Cunningham, former Managing Partner at Brachers, who recently joined the firm as a partner in the Corporate team.
Cripps is due to complete its merger with Vertex Law, as announced earlier in the summer, at the end of September.
Amanda lives in Sevenoaks, and has a child at school in the Sevenoaks area.
