UK law firm Michelmores has appointed Dhana Sabanathan as a Partner in the Private Client Department in the Tax, Trusts & Succession team in London.

“Michelmores has the ambition to become one of the go-to private client firms and I’m looking forward to working with teams across the firm to focus on how we work with private clients. Having a real depth and understanding in other teams of what we do for our private clients and drawing on the full services in the firm will allow us to provide a seamless service for our clients.”
Peter Sigler, Head of International at Michelmores, said:
“Dhana brings a strong skillset and significant experience with ultra-high net worth management, estate planning and international tax advice. Her reputation, extensive experience and broad skillset will further strengthen our international offering for our private clients.”
