Service overview

We advise high net worth individuals, international families and family offices located in the UK and internationally, with a particular emphasis on CIS, the Middle East and China.

We provide a full range of expert and coordinated legal services to help with your wealth structuring, immigration and relocation, trusts, dispute resolution, acquisitions and disposals, and personal family matters under the strictest of confidence. Much of our work involves advising the context of cross-border transactions, assets and corporate structures.

Flexibility and a tailored personal approach are at the heart of our family office service. We are alert to cultural nuances and our lawyers have a broad range of language skills. Accordingly, we are well placed to communicate effectively at times convenient to you and that we adapt according to your unique requirements.

Service highlights

We help analyse offshore incomes and structures to assess their ongoing suitability and the best options to take. This may be especially appropriate if the structures were set up based on assumptions or circumstances that have evolved, or without considering the full picture. We also help manage, coordinate and streamline managing agents responsible for administering offshore companies.
Our tax team has extensive expertise in structuring and planning family estates, both UK based and international, view to mitigating inheritance and other tax liabilities, particularly where significant assets are involved. We assist with the preparation of bespoke wills, trusts and powers of attorney in the strictest confidence and a discreet service.
We advise on all aspects of property management, including acquisition and disposal, landlord and tenant matters, tax structuring and neighbour disputes. We can also assist from within the Burlingtons Group with our tailored property search and sourcing service, and assist with the maintenance, financial administration and management of property portfolios.
We provide comprehensive transaction support, drawing in experts from our corporate, employment, dispute resolution, real estate, family and tax divisions as appropriate for the matter. We have a successful track record of bringing matters to successful completion, often cross-border and regulatory in nature with a contract value of up to £50 million.
We assist with the preparation of a comprehensive file, complete with legally certified documents, to help satisfy any due diligence, anti-money laundering, know-your-client (KYC) and other onboarding checks typically required of banks, financial institutions, estate agents and other professionals you may be working with.
We deal with all aspects of family law and are accustomed to dealing with cases involving sensitive and complex issues and high profile individuals. We act for high net worth individuals from all walks of life and their partners. Much of our work has an international flavour and we often deal with cross-jurisdictional issues.
Through the wider Burlingtons Group, we are able to bring to our sophisticated and high net worth clients an exclusive selection of off-market investment opportunities. These include both non-property and property deals, ranging from London and international developments, and trophy acquisitions through to AI, software development and wellness products.
