Senior Associate, Private Client
Ruben acts for high and ultra-high net worth clients in complex family cases with a focus on resolving financial matters for both married and unmarried couples. His clients are sometimes high profile and include entrepreneurs and those with significant inherited wealth.
Many of Ruben’s cases involve trust structures (both onshore and offshore), substantial business assets, complex remuneration schemes and tax planning. As a number of his clients are internationally based, a large proportion of his work includes jurisdictional issues and cross border elements. He also has considerable experience of drafting both pre and post nuptial agreements for wealthy clients.
In addition, Ruben advises clients in relation to private children matters. He has acted in a number of international relocation cases where one parent wishes to move abroad permanently with the children.
Ruben is one of only a handful of associates to have been named and recognised in the UK Legal 500, in which he has been described as ‘incisive’.
Prior to moving to Hong Kong in 2014, Ruben practised in London for six years with leading matrimonial law firms.
