Lucas has spent his entire professional career advising high net worth individuals, entrepreneurs, and privately owned businesses, on how they can achieve the optimum structure for their business interests and investments, as well as how they plan for future succession.
Before joining WestBridge, Lucas spent 23 years at PricewaterhouseCoopers, at offices in both the Midlands and London where he qualified as a Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA). He has worked with a broad range of clients ranging from some of the wealthiest families in the UK to entrepreneurs who are just starting out, helping them achieve their commercial goals in a tax efficient manner.
Lucas particularly enjoys solving complex problems for private clients and their businesses and is acutely aware of the importance of both advising on the interaction of corporate and personal taxes to ensure the wider implications are taken into account and on the need to be sensitive to the personal and family issues involved, in order to provide valuable advice for his clients.
Whether just starting out in business, changing how a business or investments are structured or owned, providing for employee incentives, considering acquisitions or disposals, or longer-term family succession issues, Lucas is able to design and implement business and investment structures for his clients which require a high degree of technical input and coordination by providing bespoke solutions to their commercial and tax issues across all areas.
