Our international Private Wealth group has been recognised as a market leader for many years. We are one of the few international law firms able to provide a fully integrated legal service that addresses clients' business, investment and personal interests.
Increasingly we live in the world of the “global citizen” and these individuals are constantly seeking new outlets for their wealth. They also face unique challenges a full-service team like ours is best placed to advise on.
More than 80% of our client base has connections to more than one jurisdiction and as a result a substantial proportion of our advice is cross-border in nature.
Our clients include ultra high net worth individuals and families, family offices, global property investors, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists and owners and principals of private equity houses, hedge funds and other financial services companies. We also advise fiduciaries who administer trusts and other asset holding structures for high net worth individuals and their families.
With such wealth comes a multitude of responsibilities and challenges including important and often sensitive topics like evolving family investment strategies, regularly changing tax regimes, global transparency, more sophisticated family governance requirements, disputes, and changing immigration laws, to name but a few.
Our team includes 50 partners located across 17 jurisdictions, all of whom are experienced in handling the needs of high net worth individuals.
