Protecting the interests of families lies at the heart of what we do. Whether it is providing the right advice to help manage relationships or assisting high net worth family governance across generations, cultures, and changing family dynamics, our multi-faceted and flexible approach allows us to provide support around wider concerns. Our family lawyers help unlock what can initially appear to be entrenched positions and facilitate a more comprehensive resolution of challenges that families may face, preventing those concerns subsequently turning into disputes.
We are adept at anticipating and meeting the needs of individuals and families in their wider personal and business lives. Our team of specialist family lawyers can assist with reputation management, tax, immigration, trusts, wills, and education as well as matters involving property, art and other luxury assets. We work closely with third party professionals, including therapists, clinical specialists, financial advisers, and cyber security experts to achieve better outcomes for our clients.
Where relationships break down, we understand how this not only affects a family but also third parties, including corporations and trustees, many of whom are international. Our ability to unpick the intricacies of cross-border relationship breakdown and work with lawyers and advisors in other countries ensures that difficult matters are dealt with smoothly.
We appreciate the complexity that wealth brings and assist our high net worth clients and their families through all life stages. We are innovators, leveraging new technologies and utilising non-traditional methods to deliver the best outcome to our clients. We are robust in our advice and tenacious in our approach. 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 take a strategic approach to the issues and aspirations that families have and support them in resolving issues constructively and away from the court arena, offering in-house mediation and early neutral evaluation. 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.
