The UK left the EU on 31 January 2020. A transition period, during which EU laws continue to apply in the UK, is due to end on 31 December 2020. The UK/EU Withdrawal Agreement sets out transitional arrangements and negotiations for the future UK/EU relationship are ongoing.

Our Luxury Assets Group embraces all our legal services, made up of contentious and non-contentious specialists from across the firm. It includes Art Law, Private Wealth Disputes, Intellectual Property, Real Estate, Family, Reputation Protection, Insurance, Corporate and Tax. The breadth of our expertise, grounded in many years of experience, allows us to advise on a wide range of legal issues. This could be an acquisition, a sale or loan, restructuring ownership of an investment, wealth planning, lending against assets, settling in trust, administrating an estate, or seeking advice on a dispute.

We know that our clients are passionate about their luxury assets, be it ownership of a racehorse, a diamond, an island or a classic motorbike. We do everything to safeguard and protect the assets that define their lifestyle and identity.

We advise on any kind of transaction or dispute that involves ownership. We can assist on litigation, tax, holding structures, employment and art on yachts. We have helped on a diverse range of vessels acquired for different purposes.

Our expertise covers both pre- and post-acquisition; whether this is advance due diligence or issues that arise following purchase.
