We have acted for successful people and their families for over 100 years. We have built up an in-depth understanding of the personal tax needs of our high net worth clients, and we can help them mitigate their exposure to tax both during their own lives and for future generations.
Our personal tax team is an integral part of our large wealth planning practice comprising over 150 dedicated tax lawyers. Many of our US and UK tax lawyers are qualified in other parts of the world and can bring valuable cross-border experience and knowledge to complex scenarios for clients with multi-jurisdictional interests.
We help our clients plan to attain optimal tax results in all aspects of their lives. Our role often involves structuring their business affairs and family investments, investing in financial products, using trusts and other vehicles to structure investments, dealing with tax issues arising on divorce, and reducing taxes on death.
Additionally, we help international clients to achieve significant tax benefits through our understanding of the cross-border regime regarding residence and domicile.
As part of our US practice, we represent clients whose financial affairs are being audited by the taxing authorities and regulators, and appear before the courts in tax matters.
Our clients span a broad range of professional and entrepreneurial individuals, families, and landowners. We represent their interests in over 80 countries. Some of our clients are just starting out, whilst others are worth more than major public companies.
