Law firm Cripps has strengthened its private client team with the appointment of two highly-experienced tax and trusts professionals.


Richard Mencner joins as head of the tax and trusts team, and has a wealth of experience acquired during his career which spans more than three decades.   Prior to joining Cripps, Richard held senior positions at London-based C Hoare & Co, and Heartwood Wealth Management.  He also headed the tax and trusts team at a Sussex firm, dealing largely with investment bankers and senior executives of FTSE companies. 


Vikki Logan, a qualified chartered accountant, joins Cripps as a tax manager.  Previously with Horsham based accountants Ritchie Phillips, where she had been a tax director since 2009, Vikki has over 25 years’ experience in the accountancy profession, including at big 4 firms, Deloitte and BDO.


Myles McIntosh, head of the firm’s private client team said: “We are thrilled to welcome Richard and Vikki to Cripps. 


We already have an excellent reputation for our private wealth work, and with Richard and Vikki’s significant experience and expertise from both wealth management and the accountancy sector, we are looking forward to further strengthening our overall service offering.


These appointments, together with previous expert hires earlier this year into the areas of wills and trusts and financial mis-selling, reaffirm our commitment to delivering a highly-specialised and personal service to our clients.”


Cripps has been recognised for its ability to handle a broad spectrum of complex work by leading directories for many years, and was recently recognised in the Legal 500 2017 guide as leaders in the South East for its private wealth work.  This follows last month’s recognition in the Chambers High Net Worth 2017 guide as leaders in Kent.
