"Great breadth of experience across the board and particularly in international cases"

Chambers HNW, A Guide to the World's Leading High Net Worth Advisors

London continues to be the destination of choice for international entrepreneurs, investors, professionals and their families. We have been assisting clients with international roots since the firm’s inception in 1937 and we are very used to working with people from different cultures and backgrounds and provide a collaborative and personal service. 

Our clients often have complicated family or financial arrangements and may have married a partner of a different nationality, have chosen to work abroad, have investments or assets overseas. Some of our clients are just planning their move to the UK but many moved here several years ago and are looking to obtain British citizenship or organise their affairs to protect their and their families future.

From organising your entry or investor visa to finding a property to invest or live in;  succession, tax and estate planning; starting a new business venture or employment; dealing with a family breakdown; managing disputes and reputation; and dealing with the police and other sensitive issues - our expert team of lawyers can help you plan, protect and defend all your and your family's affairs as you are on the move. 

We work closely with other UK and internationally based professional advisors to international families, high net worth individuals, professionals, entrepreneurs, investors and their families, providing you with a full service and meeting your needs during your journey to and whilst living in the UK.
