Family businesses

Family enterprises are a complex juggling act. Financial and personal motivations are closely linked and often emotional factors at play.

Owning and managing a family business, or managing family trusts or a private office, presents unique challenges. There are always financial factors to weigh up but also family issues to consider.

Our family business solicitors have all the legal and commercial acumen you need. We also understand the emotions of running a family business, private office or trust. Whether you’re managing a multi-million-pound company or an SME, a property holding trust or a commercially minded private office, our team has the specialist expertise you require.

Every family enterprise is different. Our family business lawyers understand those differences and have a wealth of experience in this area. We can provide comprehensive support for your complex legal requirements.

Supporting the growth of your business and family

Our multi-disciplinary team specialises in all aspects of business, property and private client law that are relevant to family businesses and enterprises. From tax advice and setting up trusts to raising capital and succession planning, to dealing with the disputes which can arise along the way. We can provide practical and invaluable advice as your business and family grow.

We never forget that balancing business and family interests is not easy. That’s why our solicitors will listen carefully and get to know you and your business well. We only offer advice once we fully understand your specific situation.

Our goal is to build a lasting relationship with you. That’s why we’ll assemble a specialist team that not only has the legal expertise you need, but also has the right personality fit. After all, we want working with us to be as easy as possible.
