Farrer & Co acts for international and UK private investors investing across a range of asset classes.
The firm's clients are typically sophisticated, wealthy private investors who are looking to invest both domestically and globally. As trusted advisers we look to sit at the heart of a network of advisers to our clients in the investment community and, as a result, our clients can benefit from the introductions we can facilitate.
As a law firm, we are aware of both the opportunities and challenges that exist in the investment world. Our clients come to us not just to advise on the legal structure of their investments but also to navigate them through the increasingly complex regulatory and tax environment that arises when investing across a diverse set of asset types. We work both with individuals and on syndicated investments for clients pursuing a wide range of investments, including
- patient and growth capital investments
- property acquisitions and development
- art acquisitions and disposals, and
- social impact and philanthropic investment.
We work with investors and their other advisers throughout the life cycle of an investment. This means from the outset we focus on protecting the value, managing risk and building in plans for an eventual exit.
As the value of the underlying investment grows we are able to provide ongoing monitoring assistance, guiding clients on tax changes and developments and advising on any disputes or regulatory or reputational risk that may arise. We are also able to draw on our expertise on the work we do in the private equity market to enhance our advice.
As well as our legal expertise, clients value our ability to offer commercial and strategic input. This comes from our corporate and real estate expertise and our deep understanding of the needs of private clients, which is rooted in our generations of experience advising family offices and high net worth individuals based in the UK and overseas.
