Hugh James has proudly welcomed Partner, Alix Langrognat, to its award-winning Private Client team. This addition reinforces the firm’s commitment to growing and diversifying its Private Wealth services for high-net-worth clients, both in London and nationwide.

Alix’s proficiency extends to international dimensions with a successful track-record of collaborating on matters involving jurisdictions across Europe, USA, Africa, Asia, and the Middle East.

Her skills also include navigating complex cross border estate administrations and handling applications to re-seal foreign grants.

One of Alix’s distinct strengths lies in her ability to provide strategic advice to individuals and families with connections to US. She has developed her practice to assist expatriates and UK-based US citizens (and dual nationals) with cross border advice.

Alix is STEP member and proud of her French and American roots.

Alix brings with her considerable expertise in advising high net worth individuals, which will be of particular benefit to both our growing business owner and entrepreneur client base, across all of our offices, and our valued roster of professional contacts and referrers. Alix’s focus on exemplary client care aligns perfectly with our client first values.”

On her appointment Alix said:

“I’m excited to join Hugh James and contribute to the team’s growth in London while expanding our services to those with sophisticated and international needs.

“I pride myself on exceptional client service which directly aligns with the firm’s client-first focus, and I’m keen to work collaboratively and add my proactive nature and solutions-based attitude to an ambitious and thriving team.”
