Nicholas Harries Partner
Nicholas started his career as a barrister, practising from 10 Old Square, Lincoln’s Inn (a leading set of traditional Chancery chambers). He subsequently joined Macfarlanes in 2003. He continues to hold Higher Courts rights of audience.
Nicholas’ current practice allows him to draw on both the detailed trust law and drafting experience gained at the bar and the technical tax experience gained later in his career. It embraces the full range of tax, estate and succession planning advice for individuals resident in the UK (UK and non-UK domiciliaries). It also includes advice for internationally-based individuals and their families, even where there is no significant connection with the UK.
He often works closely with our private client disputes team (drawing on his contentious experience at the Bar) and with our tax team (to deliver co-ordinated advice where both personal and business tax issues are at stake).
Nicholas also heads up our charity and probate practices.
