Our lawyers advise individuals and families on all their legal issues, from international succession planning to real estate acquisition, reputation management to immigration, and everything else private wealth related.
Whatever your starting point and however you've generated your wealth, we provide sophisticated, straightforward and clear advice to help you make the right decisions for you and your family.
While our clients are diverse and their lives are unique, the issues they face are not. Our Private Wealth team are experts at helping individuals with more complicated lives and ambitions navigate the ever-changing financial and legal landscape that faces them. We are here for international families who need help moving to the UK or dealing with disputes, and for the family offices that support their lives. We help business owners and senior executives who need commercial advice, as well as artists, authors and the owners of cultural and artistic property, who need specialist legal support.
As an example, you and your family may be planning to move to the UK, and need advice from our immigration team about visas. You may want to acquire a home in the UK, and require conveyancing and tax advice to do so. Before you arrive in the UK, you will want to structure your overseas wealth in a way that will be tax-efficient in the UK. Our lifetime planning team can help you decide how best to do this, possibly using a trust or other wealth holding structure.
Once in the UK, you may encounter employment-related issues, want advice on a pre or post nuptial agreement, or you or members of your family may separate. Over time, you may find your reputation at risk, whether as a result of something on social media or otherwise, or you may find yourself involved in a dispute relating to a family trust or estate. Our Private Wealth lawyers can deal with all of these life events, and more. We can help to make stressful situations easier, allowing you to focus on the things that matter to you.
