Inheritance, estate & gift taxes

As an international law firm focused firmly on the needs of the high net worth individual, we work with families wishing to pass wealth to future generations. We assist clients in ensuring both that their wealth passes to the intended beneficiaries, and that the government doesn’t take more than its share of the estate.

Our innovative use of flexible trusts, family limited partnerships and limited liability companies, and dual qualified charities (to name just a few solutions) can save clients significant sums in estate transfer taxes, and has further strengthened our reputation in the field.

We take an integrated approach to tax and estate planning, and routinely advise clients on the tax considerations involved in making substantial gifts to charities, trusts or friends and family members.

Our client base is a broad one, comprising entrepreneurs, authors, artists, trust beneficiaries, investors, professionals and other successful people and their families worldwide. We act for some of the world’s most successful families.
