New partner joins Saffery Champness
Top 20 accountancy firm Saffery Champness has today announced the appointment of James Hender as partner in the London office.
James joins the firm’s well-known Private Wealth & Estates Group firm from Smith & Williamson, where he spent nine years advising high net worth clients on a wide range of issues. James specialises in the financial services sector and has a range of clients that includes senior bankers, hedge fund managers and private equity specialists. Working closely with a number of non-domiciled clients, James has much experience of international tax planning.
With his vast experience and industry profile, James will be an experienced and authoritative addition to an already very well-established team. This appointment goes to reaffirm Saffery Champness’ drive to maintain and build upon its market-leading position in the private client space and comes off the back of a number of partner promotions in the last month.
On his arrival, James Hender commented:
“I’m delighted to be joining one of the country’s most highly regarded private client teams. When it comes to advisory services for individuals and their enterprises, Saffery Champness really is the best in the business and I look forward to continuing to build upon my practice alongside them in the London office.”
Managing Partner Jonathan Fox added:
“James’ appointment is excellent news for us. He has the talent and personality to make an important contribution to our team, and we believe that his arrival is testament to our success and prestige in this area. James’ move to the firm still further demonstrates our commitment to bringing in the best and the brightest talent – it is the only way to stay ahead of the game.”
