Craig Hughes


I am a Partner in Menzies Heathrow office specialising in International Private Client Services, tax planning services for private clients, Succession and IHT planning and Probate.  I have a wealth of experience working on behalf of a broad client list of high net worth individuals ranging from entrepreneurs, privately owned businesses, international singers/performers, sport stars, corporate executives, and non-UK domiciliaries.

I specialise in providing tax assistance and solutions to my clients’ complex and often international/cross-border issues.

I have a breadth of skills and experience covering strategic tax planning, estate/inheritance tax planning, assistance with the complexities faced by non-domiciled UK tax payers, international tax planning for individuals and privately owned businesses and all other aspects of personal taxation.

As part of Menzies’ International Private Client services, the team and I provide specialist advice to UK-resident foreign domiciliaries on UK taxation planning, the use of overseas and offshore structures for personal and corporate investment, as well as relocation advice to and from the UK.

In 2017, 2018 and 2019 I was named on ePrivateClient’s 35 under 35 – the definitive list of the UK’s top young private client practitioners, and listed as a rising star by Spear’s 500.
