Alexander Erskine


Alexander works with private clients and intermediaries on crossborder tax and succession planning. Alexander specialises in UK tax matters, with a particular focus on transparency issues in an international context. He advises individuals and professional intermediaries on how to remain compliant and manage their risk.

Alexander's clients know they can rely on him to guide them through complex scenarios and optimise their overall position, including as to tax. He guides clients through difficult tax regularisation and disclosure exercises, as well as creating, administering and reorganising holding structures in a tax efficient and compliant manner. He also advises private clients on controlling the flow of their information under international transparency rules and private wealth intermediaries on managing their institutional risk.

Alexander was named one of eprivateclient's Top 35 Under 35 in 2015 and 2018, and "one to watch" in Legal Week's Private Client Global Elite in 2018 and 2019.
