Family office

Private Client Solicitors offer to take all private client legal worries away from you and create a family office environment for you.

We also liaise with existing family offices to ensure that all private client advice is being serviced and we tailor solutions to suit the needs of each individual family. We understand that high net worth families are increasingly international with business, investments and family members in different parts of the globe. We can bring together other jurisdictions and work collaboratively and ensure that we keep the best interests of the family at the heart of everything that we do.

The areas that we specialise in are as follows:

  • Creating and updating governance documentation and family charters
  • Intergeneration UK tax, estate and succession planning
  • Management of International wealth via trust or other structures
  • Liaising with wealth managers in the UK and abroad
  • Liaising with immigration experts
  • Assisting families with pre-nuptial agreement and protection against divorces
  • Analysis and diversification of family wealth worldwide
  • A one-stop-shop to deal with all of your private client requirements such as arranging pre-nuptial agreements, addressing immigration concerns and dealing with complex international probate disputes

Recent case examples are as follows:
