UK-based law firm Boodle Hatfield has promoted four solicitors to partner in its London office, with effect from 1 May 2013. Hayden Bailey will become partner in the private client and tax division, Tim Maxwell in litigation, and Christina Christou and Graham Winkley in property.
Bailey has an extensive range of private client and tax planning experience, with particular expertise in advising on UK capital taxation strategy, wills, trusts, life assurance-based products, partnerships, compensation trusts and family businesses, the firm said. He also advises non-UK domicilaries on their UK taxation exposure and asset holding structures.
Maxwell has wide experience in the commercial sector, with a particular focus on art-related financial and commercial disputes. His clients include high net worth individuals, dealers, galleries and other organisations involved in the London and international art market.
He has advised on high-profile cases in the art market, including a case concerning a painting said to be by Titian, and is currently advising a private individual in a dispute with a leading auction house concerning a Caravaggio piece.
Christou’s practice in property includes investment sales and purchases, property finance, advising on landlord and tenant matters and general asset management work. She recently advised an individual on a £30 million loan for the acquisition and refurbishment of a listed private house in North London, and the sale of the Arena Retail Park in Haringey.
