Hussain joins from Evelyn Partners, where he was a partner, and brings a wealth of experience across all areas of private client tax. Also a qualified barrister, he previously held roles at BDO, Deloitte and KPMG, and has a wealth of experience across all areas of private client tax, with particular expertise in advising international families, with former clients including private equity executives, professional sportspeople, leading entrepreneurs, and family offices.

Commenting on his appointment, Hussain added, “At a time where there is so much uncertainty around the UK tax system, including with the non-domiciled regime, there will of course be challenges ahead for many private clients and international families. I look forward to tackling these issues with a team that excels at providing proactive solutions for clients, both in the current, evolving landscape and in future.”

His appointment continues a strong period of growth for haysmacintyre, which has appointed and promoted seven new partners over the last 18 months.
