Alexandra Sarkis

By Spear's

Make hay while the sun shines. That, in effect is Alexandra Sarkis’s advice to many of her clients. ‘Now is still a very benign climate for tax planning,’ she says. ‘Generally, we’re advising our clients to take advantage. Capital gains is low, and it’s only going to go one way.’ By contrast, inheritance planning has become more restrictive. ‘But we still have the ability to make exempt transfers, so we’re encouraging our clients to do that while we still can.’ Sarkis became a partner at May, May & Merrimans in 1984 and was made joint head of department when the firm merged with Hunters in 2015. As well as tax and trust work, she also specialises in estate planning and wills.
