Our Private Clients have shaped the way we do business. Through them, we have an enduring tradition of personal service. We have worked with some families for over a century, and with many whose wealth is of more recent origin.
Legal issues for our Private Clients may involve succession, tax, family disputes, divorce, or buying and selling properties. Whatever your plans for your family, your business or your assets, we will help you fulfil your ambitions.
You can take our technical skill for granted, across our firm.
Beyond that, we have an intelligent appreciation of the world you operate in. This is partly second nature, through our vast experience with Private Clients, and partly because we get to know you and your plans in depth.
We aim to be your trusted advisors, helping you secure the future of your family and your capital. We are good collaborators, both within our firm and with other service providers. So we’re never short of a new angle on a tricky problem.
