Across the world family businesses like yours are the foundation on which economies are built. Many of the most well-known business stories are or were originally family concerns, and the unique dynamics of family businesses can often be the driving source of their success.
Our family business clients include large international businesses, smaller domestic companies and everything in between, across a variety of industry sectors. We understand that the focus of a family business may frequently differ from other kinds of enterprises. Though all are committed to commercial growth, family businesses are also often looking at longer-term goals, and are celebrated by their clients for that ethos of sustainability and distinct family values.
Understanding the overlap between corporate and personal issues
With our private client heritage we are particularly well placed to help integrate both the corporate and personal aspects of your family life. Whether that’s the interplay between corporate and personal tax, or advising on the potentially delicate issues surrounding business succession from one generation to the next, we have helped a huge number of family businesses maintain their success around the world.
We approach your situation with a rounded view of every kind of issue you may face, and all of the objectives you are looking to achieve. Our knowledge and experience can be of service in areas such as corporate structuring, regulatory oversight, family and business governance, and business succession planning, as well as more traditional corporate, finance, tax and wealth planning matters.
Experienced at resolving family disputes
Our dispute resolution team is well-prepared to advise on commercial disputes within the family, as well as on more specialist issues such as family trust litigation. Front of mind for us is the fact that although it may be necessary to go to court, it is rarely in a family’s interest to have its private affairs dragged into the public arena. We will therefore do all we can to resolve disputes via alternative routes such as mediation, in order to reach a satisfactory outcome while maintaining discretion and confidentiality.
