Mid-tier accountancy firm Menzies LLP is expanding its private client team by making two new hires, due to growing demand for tax planning and advice services.   

Mike Ward has joined the firm’s Heathrow office as director, while Anisha Solanki has taken the role of senior tax adviser, with a focus on high net worth private client advice.  

With a background in private trusts and high net worth individuals, Mike trained and qualified with one of the Big 4 firms and has spent his career working for national and mid-tier firms. He has a wide range of experience in providing tax advice to individuals and specialises in advising on capital taxes to aid wealth and succession planning. 

Anisha Solanki, Senior Tax Adviser

Anisha Solanki previously worked at Simmons Gainsford, where she completed her qualifications as a chartered accountant. In her career to date, she has specialised in private client compliance, and gained experience in advising clients about inheritance tax and probate. 

Craig Hughes, private client partner at Menzies LLP, said:  

We are growing our team because of increased demand for private client services and we are always looking to develop talented individuals. Mike is an experienced adviser who is recognised in the private client industry for his technical skill, combined with a client-centric, empathetic approach.  I am looking forward to working alongside Mike and supporting him in developing his client portfolio. Anisha has also demonstrated strong skills and brings fresh energy to the team – I am looking forward to seeing her career progress in the future.”
