Private Client

Whether you want advice on passing on family wealth, the interplay between your business assets and your personal assets, or you are looking to buy or sell a house, our team are here to work with you to achieve the outcome that you wish.

Similarly, if you face conflict in your personal life, as part of your team, we are here to support, advise, negotiate and work towards a resolution for you – whether this is a family matter such as a divorce or separation, issues in regard to the family home or disputes over how the assets of a family member have been divided.

Our private client team aims to protect you, your family and your assets by working closely with you and in close partnership with other teams in the firm to ensure that the most tax-efficient and suitable structures are in place.

Our emphasis is upon building long-term relationships, rather than focussing on the matter in hand, and becoming trusted advisers to our clients. We are an entrepreneurial law firm that not only takes the time to understand our clients’ businesses and family dynamics, but also understand them as individuals.

    • Land owners and estates

    • Estate administration
    • International issues
