Previously Head of the London &International team, Nick oversees the national Tax, Trusts &Estates practice across the leading law firm’s 14 offices. Nick’s promotion marks an important step for Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth, which recently named Ros Bever as National Head of Family Law, towards offering clients a full private client service across the UK.

Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth was launched in May 2016, with the intention of better serving its clients across the country by bringing together four key practice areas of Tax, Trusts &Estates, Family, Residential Property and Will, Trust &Estate Disputes.

Nick Rucker has a background in corporate and private client law with particular interest in international structuring, investment structures and tax for high-net-worth individuals, families and private offices. He also spent five years as an investment banker.

Craig Marshall, Chief Executive of Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth, said: “The national Tax, Trusts & Estates team has already had some great success and recent hires show the development of the team into a recognised brand famed for both its expertiseand its client service. We plan to build on this position by further establishing national centres of excellence for this work, investing in client feedback and making sure that the service we offer meets their needs effectively.

George Merrylees is an expert acrossa full range of UK tax advice for international clients, including structuring UK business and property assets for clients abroad. George acts for business owners, high-net-worth individuals and familiesprimarily based in Europe and Africa. He works very closely with French business groups and organisations.

Nick said: “Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth is rapidly moving up the independent legal rankings across the country. We are carving out a reputation for high-quality advicethat clients can understand and which really helps them achieve their goals. I’m looking forward to leading the Tax, Trusts & Estates team as we seek to help many more private clients in the coming years.

“George is an example of someone who has gone from strength-to-strength at Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth.His work advising clients on international tax, trusts and estates, particularly for matters involving French-speaking countries, has made him a regular fixture of the Anglo-French legal world. As Brexit affects our lives more and more over the next few years more people will need international expertise as they review their lives and finances.”
