Much of our advice centres around the creation of asset-holding structures involving trusts, foundations and companies based in offshore financial centres. Such structures offer families a wide range of benefits, such as enabling them to protect their family wealth from political instability and other risks (such as family conflict) and help to ensure tax efficiency. Additionally, they can provide flexibility, allowing a client to plan for the succession of family wealth and businesses. They can therefore be invaluable in passing assets successfully through the generations.
From our offices in London, Monaco, Dubai and Singapore we advise on the formation and administration of trusts and other offshore structures, both in the UK and in other jurisdictions. Trust advice is given not only in relation to family settlements, but also in the creation of charities and where trusts are used in a commercial context.
With our strong links with offshore institutions, banks and advisers in different jurisdictions, we are able to provide a seamless service to our clients and their families.
