Our team specialises in complex family matters for high net worth individuals or those looking to protect future wealth – typically entrepreneurs and the owners of fast-growth companies.
We frequently look after the people behind the strategy, for major national and international companies, owner-managed businesses across diverse sectors and partners in professional services firms. As professionals ourselves, we understand our clients' business and personal pressures. Our advice is designed to help them settle family disputes with minimal emotional and financial fall-out.
Our client profile requires an understanding of how businesses work. You will be collaborating with colleagues across our commercial teams, and professionals from other sectors, to ensure your solutions suit the client’s business as well as personal needs. Many of our clients are multi-jurisdictional, so you’ll frequently collaborate with our international counsel on solving cross-border family disputes.
As court proceedings are usually a last resort, you’ll be called on to demonstrate your negotiation skills and find pragmatic, compassionate solutions. When litigation is necessary, you’ll need attention to detail, resourcefulness, determination and legal knowledge to achieve the right result.
You’ll be assured of a broad and stimulating variety of work, gaining a fascinating insight into the lives of some of the country’s leading entrepreneurs and business leaders. You’ll also have the satisfaction of knowing you are making a real difference to the outcome of what is inevitably a difficult time for them personally and for their family.
