    Private Wealth Lawyers

Wealth preservation and wealth generation are front of mind for individuals and families, with impact and legacy being a clear focus.

They are increasingly making more strategic and commercial decisions as their affairs become more complex.

As the need to navigate a complex regulatory landscape increases, advisers are becoming more sophisticated to meet the requirements in the private wealth space and we are continuing to evolve to meet these changing needs. 

We enable people to make the most of their wealth now and in the future. We will support you to ensure a smooth succession, not just of family assets, but of the values which brought you wealth in the first place.

No other private wealth law firm has the scale, reach and breadth of services we offer to our private clients. With a full service legal team, our advice is offered in the context of your succession planning, your marriage, your family life and values, your property and your assets. 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 work with you. We work in partnership with you, we collaborate with your other advisers and we think long-term.
