Our client base includes high net worth individuals and their families, often spanning several generations, from a wide number of jurisdictions including continental Europe, the Middle East, and Latin America. Such families and individuals with assets in multiple jurisdictions require specialised advice on the structuring of their affairs as failure to do so can lead to excessive tax on their estates and/ or penalties if they don’t meet their legal obligations.

Understanding family finances requires not only knowing our clients well and identifying their objectives, but also the nature of the investment and current market conditions. This is crucial to implementing the best possible strategy to achieving your tax and legal needs.

Our legal and tax specialists have a multi-jurisdictional understanding of leading issues and a commitment to exceptional client service. There is a large cross-border element to our work and we are accustomed to working with clients’ other advisors in these jurisdictions, often as the orchestrators.
