We provide legal services to the Private Wealth advisers of wealthy individuals and to individuals themselves, both in the UK and internationally.
Our role is to enable people to make the most of their wealth now and in the future. With our support, they can ensure a smooth succession, not just of family assets, but of the values which brought them wealth in the first place.
Keeping wealth intact
When a family or an individual holds assets in several countries and resides in multiple jurisdictions, they can be subject to local tax and succession laws which can overlap and sometimes conflict. This can make preserving wealth complicated. To counteract this, we offer an informed personal overview of a client’s situation, combined with specialist legal advice sourced from across our firm.
Why work with us?
No other firm has the scale, reach and breadth of services we offer to our private clients. We are deeply embedded in the world of Private Wealth, advising private banks, trust companies and family offices. Some families have entrusted us with their legal affairs for over a century. Clients like these have shaped the way we serve you. We combine technical excellence with approachability. We work in partnership with you, we collaborate with your other advisers, we think long-term. Just like you do.
