Private clients’ needs have changed. Personal and business concerns overlap and individuals operate across multiple jurisdictions. They are responsible for managing the fortunes and reputations of their business, their families and themselves. These are not tasks that can be tackled alone.
Why we are different
At Mishcon de Reya, our heritage in private client work is at the heart of our firm. Historically, the private client focus has been on tax and estate planning, trust and succession disputes, and family. Mishcon Private brings together these areas while, at the same time, broadening the practice to include reputation protection, immigration, family office management, fraud defence, residential property and art. Our clients include wealthy individuals and families and range from the high profile to the very discreet. Whatever the subject, our role is the same: to fiercely guard our clients' interests, and that often means showing we care beyond the call of duty, making their problems our own, so that they can feel confident we will solve them quickly and professionally.
The team at Mishcon Private comprises litigators, media law experts, art, tax and immigration specialists, and is highly experienced at dealing with family disputes and complex multi-jurisdictional cases. The diversity and experience of our lawyers enables them to appreciate and adapt to the client and issue at hand, acting as advisors who can be trusted to offer wise counsel in troubled times and who will be there to help our clients navigate special situations.
We engender close personal relationships with our clients, placing a premium on trust and mutual respect. We provide practical and inventive solutions, combining our legal expertise with commercial, real world advice. If disputes cannot be avoided, we endeavour to resolve them with minimum fuss. Our tenacious litigators will act swiftly to enforce or defend our clients' rights without incurring unnecessary risk or expense.
At Mishcon de Reya our clients know that whatever the issue, however dramatic the implications and high the stakes, they can leave it with us.
