Trusts & Foundations
When it comes to practical matters, rather than simply applying the letter of the law, we are able to use our experience, honed over several decades, to make innovative proposals and find effective solutions. With that experience, we are able to help clients mitigate the effects of any subsequent issues.
Our clients come from around the globe, looking to work closely with a team that can assist with every possible trust and foundation matter. This varies from establishing a structure, dealing with succession and next-generation issues and restructuring where required.
We are also able to advise on which structure is best suited to our clients' goals, the level of influence they wish to have, or any cultural sensitivities.
With our extensive track record, we have an unrivalled understanding of how the private wealth landscape has changed over the years – not only in terms of the structures themselves, but also how globalisation and the changing nature of families have an impact on client requirements. We are regularly involved in restructuring work to reflect more closely the interests of the next generation of beneficiaries.
The very nature of trusts and foundations coupled with our clients' requirements means a one-size-fits-all approach is no longer appropriate. We excel at providing a bespoke service – whether for estate planning, preservation of specific family assets, philanthropy, or the establishment of trusts for specific purposes, such as education or medical treatment.Back to all services
