Private clients and family offices

Recognised as a global leader in private client advice, we draw on many decades of experience to advise our clients on how best to structure and arrange their affairs in a complex and ever-changing world.

Whether working for a private individual or a family office, we provide seamless advice on a full range of issues including taxation, investment across a wide range of assets, corporate and regulatory.

We help private clients from around the world design and put in place a cohesive, comprehensive and workable framework to hold their assets and manage them in conjunction with other professional advisors. Whether their goal is tax efficiency, philanthropy, asset protection or the orderly transfer of wealth to the next generation we will guide them through the process to realise these goals.

The decision to manage wealth through a family office can be a complicated one, from deciding whether to establish a single family office (rather than engaging an existing multi-family office), to defining the scope of services included within it.
