Private client

Taylor Wessing is one of only a handful of serious international law firms with strength-in-depth in the private client field across numerous jurisdictions. We are very experienced in advising international families, private banks and fiduciary groups.

Our London team works closely with our private client groups in Europe, south-east Asia and the Middle East. 

Our large international team comprises more than 45 lawyers, including 21 partners. We have leading experts in international and domestic trusts and estates, with particular regard to multi-jurisdictional tax and inheritance issues as well as international asset structuring. We also have specialists in domestic and international probate, residential and agricultural property and contentious trusts.

Recognised as a market leader for many years, we have particular expertise in advising so-called ‘new money’ clients (entrepreneurs and members of the finance industry), as well as landed estates.

Our team includes specialists in financial services who are experts in advising on the establishment and management of a wide range of bespoke investment structures.

Through our cross-departmental private wealth group, we offer a unique and integrated service for the ultra-wealthy who need expert and joined-up advice on their personal wealth structures, tax planning, commercial investments and reputation management issues.

The ethos at Taylor Wessing has always been to build a close and lasting relationship with clients. We offer a partner-led service with close partner involvement and supervision, while seeking to ensure that the right expert at the right level provides the advice.
