Olga Tabenko, Solicitor, Private Client
I am a solicitor in the Tax and Private Client team and also member of the firm's Russia & CIS group. I advise HNW individuals from CIS countries and the Middle East on matters relating to residence and domicile, relocation to and from the UK, double taxation, the remittance basis, structuring of ownership of high value UK real estate, inheritance tax and succession planning with cross border elements. I have experience in assisting clients with setting up and registering UK charities.
I trained in a niche City firm which specialises in cross-border taxation and property work and qualified as a solicitor in December 2014. I joined Fieldfisher in October 2015. I am currently studying for the STEP Diploma in Trusts & Estates and have successfully passed the first of my four exams.
I have a particular interest in languages. I graduated from Minsk State Linguistic University where I studied English, Italian and German. I now enjoy learning French in my spare time.
