Roythornes boosts Private Client team with new Partner

Leading law firm Roythornes Solicitors has appointed high net worth expert Tim Galloway to head up its private client department and further expand its range of services across all of its five offices.

Tim will be based out of Roythornes’ Alconbury office after 15 years as head of a nationally recognised private client team at another prominent law firm. He specialises in advising high net worth individuals on a wide range of matters, both in the UK and internationally, providing trusted and valuable counsel, garnered from more than 25 years experience as a qualified solicitor.

Tim is a member of the Society of Trust and Estates Practitioners and sits on The Law Society’s Capital Taxes Sub Committee.

He said: “Roythornes’ private client team has an excellent reputation, particularly centred around agricultural and landed estates and high net worth clients, and I’m looking forward to joining this successful group of solicitors. The firm is ambitious and growth-oriented, with private client work at the heart of its strategic vision, which is pertinent to the present legal landscape.
“The tax system never sits still, but the current state of the world finds capital taxes in particularly turbulent times. We’re here to help individuals and business owners to navigate this ever-changing framework.”

Tim’s work will involve succession and tax planning, including wills, trusts and probate, as well as complex matters involving cross-border estates. His existing portfolio of clients will further expand Roythornes’ international client base.

This new hire follows the appointment of partners, Jak Ward, Daniel Skinner and Abdul Zaheed, who all joined the firm within the last four months.

Vember Mortlock, managing director at Roythornes, said: “The private client department is at the core of our business and we welcome Tim’s extensive expertise. His experience with high net worth individuals worldwide will add another level of service for our diverse client base.

“Tim will be an exemplar spearhead for the private client team, as well as serving as a mentor and role model for all members of the team. It’s certainly an exciting time for our firm as we’re seeing growth across all of our offices and teams – we look forward to seeing what the rest of the year has in store.”
