Our Clients: High Net-WorthOperational & Legal Support for High Net-Worth Individuals & Families
For high-net-worth individuals (HNWI’s) and their families, we offer support in all aspects of your personal and professional lives. From the sourcing, acquisition, renovation and disposal of prime residential real estate to complex succession planning, trustee services and family governance arrangements, we deliver a discreet and meticulous service at all times.
As family general counsel, we advise principals and their family office teams on all elements of their private and commercial legal affairs, including privacy, corporate, family and employment matters.
Our family wealth management services include a wide range of family office services, from succession planning and the development of family charters and ways-of-working, to the implementation and management of tax-efficient corporate and trustee structures.
In terms of physical asset management (including prime residential property, marine and aviation assets), we assist in the purchase, renovation/refit, ongoing management and rental/chartering, staffing and eventual disposal (either on- or off-market) of physical assets, which is particularly suitable for families looking to scale back on existing operations teams in single family offices, or to establish new operations teams as their physical asset portfolios grow.
For new and established trusts, we provide cost-effective and responsive trustee services, using a modern digital platform to deliver outstanding value and transparency.
For family office operations, large and small, our paymaster services handle both project and ongoing finances, consolidating payments and managing the through-flow of funds to ensure that clients have complete transparency of their ongoing costs in relation to specific assets, projects and engagements.

Our private travel service will handle all elements of your aircraft charter, yacht charter and prime property rental requirements (including air/land transfers, staffing, entertainment, prestige vehicle hire and event delivery), and ensure that your arrangements constitute good value.
For domestic, aviation and marine recruitment, we can assist in the advertising of, interviewing for and appointment of staff (either directly or on an agency basis) for households, aircraft, yachts and holiday properties (including ski chalets and villas).
