Family & Private Clients

We walk our clients through significant crossroads of family life. We always seek to advise our clients in a discreet and empathetic manner, whether it be in the course of building up the family unit through adoption or guardianship; a breakdown in marital relations and contemplation of annulment, separation or divorce; family violence requiring protection; dealing with the demise of a loved one; or coping with the aftermath of a loved one’s loss of mental capacity, etc.

We strive to achieve practicable and amicable resolutions for our clients whenever possible, but never shy away from aggressively pursuing their claims in Court when necessary.

High net worth clients also entrust us with a wide spectrum of private client issues, including the setting up of family offices, private wealth planning, asset protection, multi-jurisdictional conflicts as well as private wealth litigation.
