Strategic advice

Our expertise in working with families across their personal financial and business interests enables us to offer clients rounded perspectives as they look to tackle the challenges of managing substantial private capital and family dynamics.

A family’s relationship with its businesses and financial interests can be complex and the distinction between ownership and management can sometimes become blurred.

We work to ensure that structure and strategy align to deliver in the best interests of your family over the long term, covering considered advice on:

  • family governance
  • family constitutions
  • setting up single family offices
  • next generation preparation, and
  • succession planning
