Doyen of UK Tax Lawyers Retires at 76

Ralph Ray has announced his retirement from UK law firm Wilsons in October 2007 after a career as a tax lawyer spanning 50 years. Latterly a consultant with Wilsons, advising private clients on taxation matters, for eleven years, Mr Ray is a vice president of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners and was one of the original members of the organisation when it was founded eleven years ago. He lectured widely on tax matters - particularly on inheritance tax and its predecessors - and wrote several books. He was articled to Wedlake Saint and began his qualified career at Theodore Goddard. He later returned to Wedlake Saint, where he served for some 35 years and became senior partner. Subsequently, he was part-time with Shoosmiths before becoming a consultant with Wilsons.
