Her arrival from Harbottle & Lewis, following prior stints at Farrer & Co, brings a wealth of knowledge to Mishcon de Reya.
On the other hand, Idina Glyn brings her adeptness in transactional and advisory property matters, onshore tax, trust, succession, charity, super prime central London property matters, and art law. Having transitioned from Forsters, her proficiency in navigating diverse legal disciplines to solve complex challenges amplifies the firm's offerings.
The strategic recruitment of these Partners strengthens Mishcon de Reya's private services, aligning with the recent appointment of Partners Timothy Burns and Wei Zhang in Asia. Nick Davis, Partner and Chair of Mishcon Private, expressed enthusiasm for the enhanced team, emphasizing the reinforcement in expertise concerning estates and family business matters.
Both Marianne Kafena and Idina Glyn conveyed their excitement about joining Mishcon de Reya. Marianne's focus lies in catering to the new generation of family business owners in the Middle East, while Idina aims to leverage her expertise to assist landowners and ultra-high net worth individuals in developing Mishcon Private's landed estates practice.
Their combined knowledge and proficiency are poised to elevate Mishcon de Reya's standing as an innovative law firm, ensuring tailored services for a diverse clientele seeking guidance in the ever-evolving landscape of private legal matters.
