UK law firm Penningtons Manches has hired private client partner Ryan Myint into its private wealth group.
Based in the firm's London office, Mr Myint joins the firm from Taylor Wessing, where he was a partner in the international private client group for over eight years, including a secondment to the Singapore office from 2012 to 2015.
Before joining Taylor Wessing in 2004, Mr Myint had stints at both Withers and Clifford Chance. Specialising in wealth structuring, trusts and succession, Mr Myint acts for entrepreneurs, business owners, fund managers, property developers, high profile international families, offshore trust companies and private banks. He is also a former eprivateclient Top 35 Under 35.
He has a background in advising Asian clients, as well as UK, European and Middle Eastern clients with an interest in Asia. He is recognised as an expert in his field for multi-jurisdictional tax planning, including cross-border tax reporting, disclosure and transparency issues, Pennington Manches said.
Penningtons Manches' head of private wealth, Clare Archer, commented: “Following a very successful year for both the private client team and the wider firm, we are excited to welcome Ryan in 2019. Not only does he have a wealth of experience in the sector, he’s a great fit for the team, with a skill set that will complement our existing expertise and help bolster our broader private wealth offering.”
Mr Myint’s appointment to the team follows the recent arrival of three new private client solicitors: Emma McCarthy, Rebecca Goldring and Nathan Greenwood - bringing the size of Penningtons Manches' private client team to 60.
