    Client Advisers and Trustees Legal Services

The private wealth community is supported by a dedicated group of advisers who work together to achieve their clients’ goals.

As a member of that community, we enjoy learning from others, and working together for mutual benefit of our clients. We share many client relationships and share the same clients’ concerns and ambitions, whilst making sure their safety and security is not compromised.

We understand that each adviser has a role to play and that each client has a different preference to who they prefer to resort to more closely day to day, be that other legal advisers, accountancy professionals, property agents and consultants, as well as private bankers, investment advisers, wealth managers, family offices and trustees. We also understand the value of specialists engaged with art and collectables, bloodstock, aircraft, ships, high-level design, landscape creations, and rare craftsmanship.

As well as working with fellow specialists like you with our mutual clients, we are here to support your own business on its growth journey, with a wider network for the new clients we develop together.

This is particularly relevant for investment managers and private bank advisers, and family offices but also for businesses throughout the wealth industry. We are able to support you as a business on any regulatory, tech, property, employment, data protection or dispute matter. For those looking to grow through mergers or acquisitions, we can bring our specialist corporate colleagues quickly together to close deals so you can re-set your priorities.

We are advisers to advisers.
