Butler Snow is pleased to announce Christopher L. McLemore has joined the firm’s London office. McLemore is a member of the tax group, and will focus his practice on international tax and wealth management.
“We are thrilled to welcome Chris to the Firm and to further expand our international wealth planning team,” said Kurt G. Rademacher, director of Butler Snow’s international tax practice. “His addition will provide our clients in the UK and elsewhere with solid experience and in-depth expertise in cross-border estate planning and income taxation.”
Brad F. Westerfield, managing partner of Butler Snow’s London office, noted, “With Chris’s addition, we now have four permanent London-based U.S. tax lawyers and an additional U.S. tax lawyer who splits his time between the U.S. and U.K., which makes ours one of the largest U.S. private client legal teams in the U.K. We could not be more pleased with Chris’s decision to join our growing team.”
McLemore completed his undergraduate education at Kansas State University, and went on to earn a masters of public administration from the University of Denver and his Juris Doctor from the University of Notre Dame, where he graduated cum laude. He has practiced in London his entire career, where he advises clients on U.S. and international tax planning for individuals, trusts and estates. McLemore also has been heavily involved in advising clients on the IRS voluntary disclosure programs.
McLemore serves as chairman of the U.S. Professionals Association, a professional organization of lawyers, accountants, investment managers and other practitioners who serve American clientele.
