Law firm Winckworth Sherwood has expanded its Private Business & Wealth offering with the appointment of Dhana Sabanathan. Dhana has significant experience in the private client and wealth management sector, working with high-net-worth / ultra-high-net-worth individuals, family offices, entrepreneurs, corporates and owner-managed businesses.
Dhana, who joins from McDermott Will & Emery where she was a partner, will add her expertise to Winckworth Sherwood’s robust Private Client team. She will work together with the firms’ employment, family, corporate and tax teams to deliver enhanced and co-ordinated value to clients’ business and personal affairs. Dhana is highly regarded as an advisor to UK and non-UK clients on international tax and estate planning. She also brings significant experience in cross-border estate planning issues and advising financial institutions on international trust matters.
“We recognise that a client’s business and personal life can often be closely linked,” said Hugh MacDougald, head of the Private Client team at Winckworth Sherwood. “Dhana has exceptional experience helping clients navigate those close links and understanding the requirements in both areas. As a result, she brings an ability to help our clients meet their wider business and personal goals.”
“Winckworth Sherwood provides an outstanding Private Client offering,” said Dhana. “The chance to work with industry-leading colleagues across a range of practice areas, means I’ll be able to offer clients a truly full-service solution. This is an incredible opportunity.”
