Julian Washington

Julian is Head of Client Insight for RBC’s international wealth management business. Starting his career after reading law at Cambridge, Julian qualified as a solicitor in 1993. He practised law, first with Charles Russell and latterly with Forsters in Mayfair, where he accepted an offer of partnership in 2005. Julian specialised in estate planning for high net worth families (ranging from traditional landed estates to entrepreneurial “new money”) and charity law advice.

Julian was in the vanguard of advisers to same sex couples, following the enactment of the Civil Partnership Act 2004; legislation which dramatically changed the LGBT legal landscape. Joining RBC in 2010, Julian has become a regular writer and spokesman for the bank on a variety of wealth management and estate planning topics across traditional and new media.
