Wealthy individuals and families get plenty of advice on where to invest.
As your lawyers, it's our role to be objective. We never advise on what investments should be made – only how they should be structured.
Whether you're considering investing in a business, real estate, a yacht, artwork or a complex financial product, our local and global teams will work together to navigate any cross-border issues, improve your tax efficiency and ensure the investment meets regulatory requirements wherever you or the investment assets are located.
Our global knowledge means we are regularly consulted by people with interests in more than one country. Clients include entrepreneurs, sports stars, entertainment personalities and some of the world's most successful families.
Private investment fund
We assisted our client, a European family to establish a private investment fund and investment structure together with a trust holding structure.
Chilean investment in gold producer
A Chilean client engaged us to advise on their investment in the AIM-listed Brazilian gold producer Serabi Gold.
Swiss family office
Advised a Swiss family office on the structuring of an investment in UK commercial real estate - our multi-disciplinary team of colleagues with expertise in commercial real estate, corporate law and banking law worked to structure and document the funding arrangements to avoid triggering a taxable remittance to the UK by the principle.
We worked with Crown Global to devise the first dual qualified US/UK insurance bond. The policy we advised on is the first insurance policy of its kind on the market which is suitable for individuals who are subject to the US and UK tax systems, such as US citizens living in the UK.
A family partnership
Withers advised a family office when they wished to implement a 'tracking' partnership basis. Our team pooled the family's high-value investments into a single entity structure but allowing each family member to allocate their investments to the assets that suited them best. This tax-efficient structure was tailored to the individual financial needs of each member, their tax status and goals.
