National Law Firm Expands Tax, Trusts and Estates Team
Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth has recruited a new partner to the national law firm’s Chichester office in the Tax, Trusts and Estates team.
David Bird has been appointed by Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth’s Chichester office. Bird has expertise in tax and trust law and advises on tax planning for a variety of clients including business owners, shareholders in private companies and families with inherited wealth. He also creates Trusts, Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney and advises on existing structures.
As well as being a solicitor, Bird is a Chartered Tax Adviser and a member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners.
Prior to qualifying as a solicitor more than 20 years ago, he worked in financial services where he gained investment, insurance and pension qualifications, which has given him a wider view of tax planning. He works with a number of financial advisers and accountants for various types of clients.
Michael Taylor, Partner and head of the Private Wealth team in Chichester, added: “We’re very excited to see David, who has such a wealth of experience, join our team. David’s Chartered Tax Adviser status and contacts in the financial advice sector combined with his many years in the private wealth profession further adds to our already strong Chichester team. David’s ability to consider the corporate aspects of a transaction or tax planning arrangement for an individual shareholder will enable us to provide a comprehensive service to our personal clients.
“We look forward to working with David and I’m confident that he will be a great addition to the local and wider national team.”
