We’re delighted to announce the promotion of David Portman to a Tax Partner.

David Portman joined Lubbock Fine in 2016 as a Personal Tax Senior, having previously worked at a mid-tier accountancy firm in London. With a career spanning over 16 years, David has developed a deep expertise in providing tailored tax solutions to high-net-worth individuals and ultra-high net worth individuals, including sports players, entertainers and tech entrepreneurs.

David has extensive experience of advising on UK tax matters for non-domiciled individuals, including the transition to the UK’s new Foreign Income and Gains system from 2025. He focuses on helping these clients effectively manage their international tax affairs while safeguarding their family wealth. To achieve this David works closely with the overseas member firms of the Russell Bedford International network in order to provide a seamless cross border tax advisory and compliance service.

He also specialises in providing bespoke financial guidance to professional athletes. His advice often focuses on the transition from a relatively short, high-income playing career to a long, wealthy retirement or second career.

David Portman said: "I’m excited to step into the role of partner and contribute to the continued growth and success of Lubbock Fine. The firm has some really fantastic clients, and I am looking forward to continuing to work with them for many years to come.”

Phil Blackburn, Senior Tax Partner at Lubbock Fine, added: "David has consistently delivered outstanding results for our clients over the past eight years. We are delighted to see him join the partnership.”
