Private client (Family, Inheritance and Wealth Management)

Our private client lawyers provide expert, clear and succinct advice on planning, structuring and protecting your and your family’s wealth, assets and affairs. We help you to plan your succession and arrange your estate in the way that will serve many generations of your family.

We commonly deal with preparation of wills, trusts and powers of attorney. In each case we develop a detailed picture of your circumstances and objectives, working closely with any other advisers you have (including accountants, financial advisers, financial planners and family offices), and help you to find any that you need, to ensure that we deliver comprehensive solutions which work for you.

We also review any existing estate, tax and international wealth arrangements you have in place, such as assets held in SPVs and offshore vehicles, to help you assess whether these continue to be fit for your purposes now and in the foreseeable future.

Both marriage and divorce and dealing with the issues that arise out of the breakdown of a marriage or couple relationship requires attention to every detail, especially the interests of children of the relationship.

Our family lawyers listen to what is important to you and deal with your matter in a sensitive and constructive way, helping you to retain your dignity, look more positively to the future and achieve an outcome that works for you and your family.

We deal with all aspects of family law and are accustomed to dealing with cases involving sensitive and complex issues and high profile individuals. We act for high net worth individuals from all walks of life and their partners. Much of our work has an international flavor and we often deal with cross-jurisdictional issues.

In addition to conventional legal advice, we offer out-of-court process options including family mediation.
