  • Tax and succession planning
  • Art, chattels and conditional exemption
  • Business and ownership structures for families
  • Events and public access

We pride ourselves on the personal attention we give our clients.  Each client has a dedicated partner to be an accessible first point of contact with the firm.  As every family and each estate is different, we visit our clients regularly to gain an understanding of an estate’s individual challenges and opportunities.  We develop long-term relationships with our clients which are characterised by genuine affection and trust.

Whatever the situation, our advice will be clear, authoritative and driven by the need to provide you with a practical solution.
