UK law firm Cripps has expanded its private client team with the appointment of a new partner, David Semmens.
Mr Semmens is experienced across a range of private client matters, with particular expertise in the drafting of complex wills and trusts, advising on UK and international succession and tax planning, and administering the UK estates of overseas domiciled clients.
Myles McIntosh, head of the firm’s private client division, said: “David’s appointment further strengthens our offering to both UK and international clients. He is a great addition to our growing team and helps to reinforce our first class reputation across the country.”
Previously, Mr Semmens headed the private client teams at a number of large, well respected London law firms, including Gordon Dadds and DKLM. His clients include entrepreneurs and business people, entertainers, sports individuals and other professionals. He also acts for UK ex-pats living in Europe (mainly Switzerland) and the USA.
Cripps has offices in Tunbridge Wells, London and Kings Hill, turnover of £29.2 million in 2016-17, 48 partners and an overall headcount of more than 350.
