Protecting the interests of families lies at the heart of what we do. Whether it is advising on inter-generational wealth preservation or dealing with relationship breakdown, we take a strategic approach to the issues and aspirations that families have. We appreciate the complexity that wealth brings and we assist our clients and their families through all life stages. We are robust in our advice and our approach to litigation but always seek resolution with minimal acrimony. We handle every matter with the utmost discretion, a given in any situation, but even more so because many of our clients are high-profile and often in the public eye.
We encourage parents to put children at the centre of their decision making. With the Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships, we are the first Firm to partner with a therapeutic organisation to find better ways of resolving disputes that involve children. We believe in building families too and support parents undergoing assisted reproduction and surrogacy arrangements.
We understand how relationship breakdown not only affects a family but also third parties, and our clients include individuals, corporations and trustees, many of whom are international. Our ability to unpick the complexities of cross-border relationship breakdown and work with lawyers and advisors in other countries ensures that difficult matters are dealt with smoothly.
Beyond our bespoke service for the full range of issues clients may face during separation or divorce, we anticipate and meet the needs they encounter in their wider personal and business lives. This includes reputation management, tax, corporate and commercial advice and a wide variety of litigation issues. We can also draw on our colleagues’ expertise in Mishcon Private, to deal with any other matters that arise from issues around trusts, wills and immigration or matters involving property, art and other luxury assets.
