Individuals have very different needs to businesses, both emotionally and practically.
This differentiation has shaped the legal industry and how we do business, to ensure we have specialist lawyers responding to an individual’s personal plans across multiple areas such as tax planning, family and relationship decisions, property and philanthropy.
We have detailed below the specific technical areas we can support you with as an individual, according to the legal framework in which we operate. These may involve succession, tax, family disputes, divorce, or buying and selling properties.
If you relate to any of the following areas, you may also be interested in our broader expertise supporting your businesses, business interests, business property, employees, contractual disputes, amongst others things, which can be found in the links below.
