Withers has represented successful individuals and families for over a century.
Today, we are the only global law firm dedicated to the personal and private capital needs of high net worth individuals and families.
Many of our clients’ interests are purely domestic. Others are international families with interests in a number of locations. In a fast-moving and increasingly compliance focused world, the need for integrated advice that reaches across borders has never been greater. With offices across Europe, the United States and Asia-Pacific we provide coverage that other law firms in this area cannot match. Our team of experienced private client solicitors continually look for opportunities to ensure we have a strong presence in the locations where our clients live, work and invest.
Whether you require advice on legal and tax structuring for your business and investments, family and business governance, tax and estate planning or help with a vulnerable person in your family, our private client attorneys will deliver tailored solutions to meet your specific needs.
Clients from every walk of life
Our clients have achieved success in many fields, from senior executives to multi-generational families, to owners, managers and investors in private capital and some of the world’s wealthiest people. In Europe we have represented 70% of The Sunday Times top 100 Rich List and over 25% of The Forbes 400 List of the Wealthiest Americans; in Asia we act for 35% of the Hong Kong Forbes Rich List.
We act not just as private client lawyers but trusted advisers, looking to build strong relationships with yourself and other professionals advising you. This is one of the reasons we are proud to have been asked to represent families down the generations.
