Our new Private Wealth division brings together specialists from across the firm in legal and non-legal services - family, tax, private client, residential conveyancing, and pension and investment services to name a few - to provide a full suite of advisory services to local and international individuals, families and the institutions who support them. We recognise their needs and offer personal and business focussed legal services, together with advice that makes practical and commercial sense. Our clients range from traditional UK based individuals and families, entrepreneurs, business owners and professionals to high and ultra-high net worth international clients of all types.
