The sale of the trust business aligns with our client’s focus on simplifying its proposition and allowing it to concentrate on its core strengths as a private bank.

Our team was led by Corporate and M&A partner AJ Venter, supported by director Julie Book and solicitor Scott Paterson. The firm’s Corporate and M&A team worked closely with Commercial partner, Martin Cook, Employment partner, Katie Russell, Tax partner Hilary Barclay and senior associate Jessica Chesterfield and Trusts & Private Client partner Catherine de Maid and director Edward Hayes.

AJ Venter comments: “It has been a pleasure to advise on this interesting and complex transaction, alongside the wider Burges Salmon team. Completing this transaction in collaboration with our client’s deal team has been a hugely positive and rewarding experience for all involved at Burges Salmon.”
