Our Private Client team can advise on the full spectrum of private client matters including: Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney; succession planning; UK and international trusts; planning for non-UK domiciliaries; obtaining probate, estate administration and post-death variations; taxation; charities; heritage property; landed estates; and tax litigation.
Much of our work has an international dimension and involves succession and trust based issues, as well as tax concerns.
The team is ‘technically very solid and gives fantastic advice’ and provides ‘a very good service focus’.
Our client base has considerable breadth – we advise local families with modest wealth through to international Sunday Times Rich List individuals, globally wealthy families, leading financial institutions, trustees, charities, family offices and individuals in the sport and music industries. We also have particular expertise in advising fund managers and entrepreneurs. We feel our strength lies in being able to give advice to clients which is tailored to both their personal and financial situation.
Given the economic challenges we are all facing and the ever-changing landscape of the UK tax system, it is more important than ever for our clients to structure their financial affairs in a robust manner and to consider sensible tax planning opportunities available to them.
The team has been recognised for providing a real alternative to the City for private client matters given the quality of the team’s offering.
