Wealth firms, lawyers & accountants unite to tackle US conundrum

‘The purpose of this group is to position all of us better to provide guidance and support to clients and thereby continue to raise standards within our section of the industry.’
Wither lawyer Chris McLemore added: ‘Withers decided to join because the American market in the UK is a niche area and we thought it would be good to bring together as many people in this area as possible.
‘The discussion element makes the group unique and allows members to learn how others are dealing with the issues of the day, whether they relate to tax, investments, immigration or any other area.’
The USPA will meet on a quarterly basis in venues across the City and each of the meets it has so far held has attracted around 50 people.
‘The idea is to make meetings sociable and fun as well as having technical value and interest,' Hicks said.
‘Many professionals from different disciplines have become used to interacting on a specific client’s behalf but rarely get the chance to know each other beyond that.
‘Other networking groups tend to focus on one area, such as tax, but the USPA has the interests of the US expatriate client at its core, so anyone who advises US expats in a professional capacity is welcome to join.’
