Daniel joined Hassans in 2014 and is an Associate in the Corporate and Commercial department.
After graduating from University College London with an LLB degree, he completed the Legal Practice Course with a Commendation at Kaplan Law School in London. Daniel is the firm’s first solicitor to have additionally gained accreditation in Gibraltar Law, having attained the Professional Certificate of Competence in Gibraltar Law from the University of Gibraltar in 2016. He qualified as a Solicitor in November 2016 and is a member of the Law Society of England and Wales.
Daniel’s practice consists mainly of private client and tax related work. He also advises on setting up and managing trust and corporate cross-jurisdictional tax efficient structures, corporate commercial work and transactional matters.
Taking a somewhat unconventional route to his legal career, Daniel’s previous professional experiences vary widely, from writing papers for a high profile Westminster think tank to being a named contributor to the Commission on a Bill of Rights report to the UK Government, and from curriculum writing and class teaching in a London primary school to Project Manager of a 24-hour initiative involving 3,000 volunteers and 100,000 participants in 200 locations across the UK.
Daniel passionately believes in community engagement and is heavily involved in pro bono activities in his spare time. He is a founder and director of several youth organisations and governor of a local Gibraltarian primary school.
