Legal risk management

Family office clients face risks from many directions, including legal liability, risk of investment loss or devaluation, compliance failure, tax and property law change, security (this includes risks to property and person) family dissension, divorce and indiscretion.
The mitigation and balancing of risk in all its forms is of paramount importance for many family office clients.

Wealthy families and family members are faced with many legal and investment challenges, and increasing regulatory scrutiny. These issues become more acute in the case of multi-generational families with members based in various countries who have international asset holdings.

Recent work

  • Conducting an audit of various substantial wealth-holding structures, to ensure they were watertight from a fiduciary and tax perspective.
  • Undertaking a major review of the trust and asset structures of a large international family with international assets. One of the main purposes was to identify potential areas of risk for the family and take measures to safeguard against such risks going forward.
