Mark Davies has described himself as the ‘energy business’ of the offering at his eponymous firm. ‘It’s my job to energise the team to excel in our core values,’ he has previously told Spear’s. ‘We aim to be the boutique of choice for UHNWs, attracting the best talent to work with us – including staff in the management of the firm.’

Davies founded the firm in 2007 to focus on a clientele of mainly entrepreneurs and UK-resident non-doms to provide tax advice on complex structures – especially with offshore trusts and companies. The firm has since grown into a team of specialists, many of whom are themselves non-doms.

‘We are a firm of chartered tax advisers focused exclusively on individuals, trustees and their advisers,’ he has said of the boutique. ‘Most people do not know the difference between tax planning, tax avoidance and tax evasion – and neither does the government.

‘Many of my friends criticise me because I help rich people pay less tax. But I fundamentally believe in the rule of law and that nobody should be compelled to pay more than the law allows. So I usually describe my job as problem solving; much of my job is making sure that my clients avoid being taxed in more than one jurisdiction.’

Davies has also regularly lectured on the subjects of residence and domicile.
