Our services

We provide exceptional trusts and private client services covering both contentious and non-contentious matters in all our jurisdictions.

Our highly regarded International Trusts & Private Client team includes some of the
most renowned litigators and legal advisers in the offshore world.

Overview

Our International Trusts & Private Client practice is unique among the larger offshore firms in that it operates as a single, integrated team across all six of our offices.

With this distinctive global perspective, we’re able to advise neutrally on the most appropriate jurisdiction in which to establish and administer wealth management structures. We work together without jurisdictional boundaries in our clients' interests.

Private Wealth Structuring

Our expert team advises trustees, high-net-worth individuals and family offices on wealth structuring, estate planning and trust and foundation set-up and administration. This covers the trust and foundation lifecycle – from design and implementation of new structures through to the transformation and consolidation of older ones.

We advise on hundreds of trusts and foundation structures every year, and are also directly involved in shaping the development of the law. This means that we’re able to offer our clients the most up-to-date thinking and expertise in wealth structuring in the market.

Private Wealth Litigation & Dispute Resolution

Our team advises trustees and beneficiaries on complex litigious and potentially litigious issues arising in the course of the administration of trusts and foundations (both contested and non-contested). These include requests for trust information, transfers of trusts to other service providers, restructurings, rectification, mistake and Public Trustee v Cooper applications.

Pensions & Employee Benefit Trusts

We have decades of experience in advising companies, pension administrators and trustees on the establishment, management, development, restructuring and winding-up of pension schemes and employee benefit trusts.

We frequently work alongside top-tier onshore law firms, actuaries, administrators and employee benefit advisers in this area.
