Paul Levy

Partner

Private Wealth

Paul is a Partner in the Private Wealth department. His practice covers a broad range of work for UK and international families and entrepreneurs, encompassing everything from Wills and probate to the most complex tax planning. He has a particular focus on working with international clients, especially concerning trusts and other wealth structuring opportunities.

Court of Protection work forms another part of Paul’s caseload.  He is experienced in advising elderly clients (Lasting Powers of Attorney, tax mitigation and the like) and in recent years has developed an expertise in handling trust and probate disputes, itself a specialist area.  Paul acted for the widow, in her claim regarding her late husband’s Will, in the case of Eade v Hogg [2021] EWHC 1057 (Ch) and he also acted for the applicant in F v R [2022] EWCOP 49 in a case concerning whether the variation of a Will amounted to a deliberate deprivation of capital under the relevant welfare legislation.

Paul is a member of STEP (the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners) and a student member of the Association of Contentious Trusts and Probate Specialists.
