We are delighted to announce the appointment of Iain Mair as a partner in our Private Wealth team.

Iain has many years of experience in the area of international private wealth management, both in-house and private practice.

He joins us from Scotia Private Client Group in Miami, where he was Director of International Wealth Structuring, and has worked extensively with clients and their advisors in South and Central America and the Caribbean. Iain also has experience working with clients from the former Soviet Union, the MENA region, and numerous other offshore jurisdictions. Iain is business proficient in English, Brazilian Portuguese, Spanish and Russian.

Iain regularly advises ultra-high net worth individuals and family businesses on international and domestic personal and business tax planning, on succession planning for businesses, on tax efficient inward investment into the UK, and on offshore trusts and other wealth structuring vehicles.

Adrian Biles, our Managing Partner, commented:

“Private Wealth has been a key area of expertise for the firm since its inception and Iain’s experience significantly bolsters our ability to advise international clients, particularly from the Americas. 

London continues to be a major centre for the international high net worth community and we have seen a significant rise in clients from the Americas in recent years. Iain’s arrival is an important step for Gordon Dadds’ wider Personal team and for the firm more broadly.”

Iain Mair commented:

“Gordon Dadds’ Private Wealth team has a deserved reputation for high level expertise. This, combined with the firm’s dynamic growth and global outlook, means that it is uniquely placed to cater for the needs of the international business community.

I will be working alongside fellow new joiner and Head of Tax Huw Witty to provide advice to international ultra-high net worth clients from a personal, business and consulting perspective.

Gordon Dadds is truly a new breed of professional services firm and I am delighted to be joining at this exciting time.”
