        Private Capital

        We’re living longer and facing a world where planning for the present and the future is a necessity, not a luxury.

        Operating both in the UK and overseas, we deliver specialist guidance across all private capital areas. Our business owner, entrepreneur and high net worth family clients trust us to understand the complexities and opportunities relevant to them, drawing together a holistic solution that gets the required results.

        While other lawyers may limit their advice to preparing for the future we draw on expertise from across the firm to support our clients both now and as their circumstances change. We are one of the few firms to provide a breadth of expertise across capital tax planning, the preparation of wills, trust deeds and lasting powers of attorney, estate and trust administration, wills and trusts disputes and more complex and high net worth tax planning vehicles such as family investment companies, limited partnerships and family office issues.

        Clients tell us that we stand out for our commitment to listening, advising and acting in a way that goes beyond just legal advice. Our commercial approach combines deep expertise, delivered by people with relevant experience. We get straight to the heart of the problem, presenting practical, long-lasting solutions.
