Partner, London

Lizzie Murray

Lizzie is Head of the Private Wealth Practice Group and a Partner within the Private Wealth and Estates Group in London, having joined the firm in 2011 from a Private Bank.

Her work involves coordinating the services provided by the firm to her High Net Worth (HNW) clients. She works collaboratively with clients to support them in all aspects of their financial affairs, providing tax advice on transactions or events, and overseeing the compliance work for all related entities, including companies, trusts and partnerships.

Many of Lizzie’s clients have multi-faceted requirements and she therefore works closely with their other advisers to provide advice on generational wealth, asset protection and philanthropy. She is passionate about empowering female clients, particularly during pivotal life events such as divorce or a business transaction.

Lizzie regularly writes articles and contributes to the firm’s various publications.
