“We have acted for the majority of our clients over many years and, in some cases, over successive generations. We are dedicated to retaining these longstanding relationships and to building more!”

Nicholas Hughes

Partner

Nick qualified as a solicitor in 1984 and practised with two City firms until 1996 when he joined Williams Jeffrey Barber, a tax consultancy which provided advice to accountants and solicitors. After its merger into the Chiltern Group, Nick was appointed director in charge of the Trusts and Estate planning team. In 2007, Chiltern was acquired by BDO LLP where Nick was admitted as a partner within the private client department.

Nick has a wealth of experience gained throughout his 30 year career, and brings to the Partnership a pragmatic and sound legal mind.  Nick advises UK and non-UK domiciliaries in relation to domicile and residence issues, trusts (both offshore and onshore), tax, succession, and estate planning matters (including international estates with cross border issues).

Nick is a member of the Society of Trust and Estate practitioners and has lectured widely.

Married with four children, Nick enjoys spending time with his family, is a keen gardener and is still trying to improve his running times.
