Global law firm Dentons has appointed Roddy Harrison as partner in its private client and charities team within the UK tax department, based in Scotland.
Mr Harrison joins from BTO Solicitors, where he headed the private client practice and was a partner for over 15 years.
He advises private clients, including high net worth individuals and entrepreneurs, on personal and business matters including capital taxes planning, estate planning, will and power of attorney drafting, family business succession planning, and guardianship applications. He also has considerable experience in trust drafting and administration and provides legal advice to charities on formation and management issues.
Jeremy Cohen, Dentons' chief executive for the UK and Middle East, said: “As well as strengthening our private client offering in Scotland, he (Mr Harrison) is very well placed to support our wider UK Tax practice, which has seen great growth and benefited in the past year from two additional partner hires in London – Alex Tostevin and James Meakin."
