Private Wealth

The number of high net worth individuals and families worldwide is increasing and so is their wealth. Managing and protecting wealth can be complex. However complicated, our lawyers will find the right legal solution for you.

Our private wealth clients are typically entrepreneurial. They come to us from the UK and overseas for guidance about their most complex affairs. The responsibility this brings means that even greater attention needs to be given to manage their reputation, ensure regulatory compliance and reduce risk. Effective planning is essential to make sure these are minimised, especially through major challenges that life can bring.

Our dedicated private wealth group work with business owners, family offices and private HNW and UHNW individuals, their families and their advisers. Our lawyers help clients through all aspects of their lives, both business and personal, creating solutions and straightforward legal advice to ensure wealth is protected. With a number of qualified tax advisers in our team, we often deal with situations that need to take account of tax and succession planning issues.

No matter how challenging the issues, you’ll have a team behind you that will give you advice in a language you understand, with a clear plan that allows you to move forward with confidence. Our lawyers will be there for you whenever you need them, to make life as hassle-free as possible and help you make the most of your wealth now and in the future.
