Wealth and succession planning

Often working closely with a family's other advisers, we offer guidance on all legal aspects of wealth planning and protection and family relationships.

Succession planning – we specialise in everything from wills, powers of attorney and estate administration to trusts and Family Investment Companies.

Tax advice – we are able to advise on all areas of tax in relation to wealth and succession planning, including inheritance tax, capital gains tax and stamp duty.

Entrepreneurs and family businesses – key areas we offer guidance on include business property relief and entrepreneurs' relief.

Real estate – our services range from simple conveyancing to managing
the family estate and developing your investment portfolio.

Cross-border – where assets straddle multiple jurisdictions, we can work with our private international law team and firms in our global network to provide clear, practical advice.

Family relationships

For any family, relationship changes will often have significant immediate and long-term consequences – both emotionally and financially. Expert, empathetic advice is vital to ensure you are taking the right course and the process is sensitively and constructively handled.

We have a large team with numerous specialisms. Our services include drawing up pre-nuptial, post-nuptial and cohabitation agreements. We also advise on the end of relationships (whether married or not) and help structure financial settlements.

Other specialisms include advising on family creation – including adoption and surrogacy, our specialist children advisers for arrangements for children after divorce or separation and all issues relating to education, from early years through to university and beyond.
