Family Offices and Family Businesses

At Mishcon de Reya, our heritage in private client work is at the heart of our Firm. We understand the dynamics and needs of families, family businesses and family offices across the world. Our strength and depth in wealth structuring, tax and succession planning and private wealth disputes means that we are able to ensure our clients can realise their long-term aspirations whilst enabling them to mitigate against any unexpected turns of events.

Many of the families we advise regularly have personal wealth, business and property interests in numerous jurisdictions and sectors. They are often not resident in the UK, and many have never been resident or domiciled here.

The issues they face are complex and varied. Nevertheless, the focus for all of our clients remains the same: preservation of their wealth for the benefit of their families and philanthropic endeavours. They also aim to preserve their privacy, protect and grow their assets, realise value and safeguard their reputation and family values. We work with them to navigate and balance these potentially conflicting objectives, providing bespoke and tailored solutions for each situation.

We are highly experienced in advising family businesses on all their corporate needs, including corporate transformation - whether by way of acquisitions, sales or reorganisations for mergers. Our team in Singapore is experienced in establishing family offices and tax-efficient holding structures and works with family businesses across South East Asia on cross border M&A transactions, joint ventures, financing transactions and debt restructurings.

The work we do is against a backdrop of a dynamic and increasingly regulated world. Based in London, Singapore and Hong Kong, with lawyers qualified in England, Switzerland and Ireland - and with significant experience advising across Europe, the Middle East, Russia and CIS, the US and China - we are well placed to support our clients with any tax, regulatory and legal issues that may arise.
