Charles Russell Speechlys LLP

We know the importance of private capital

One of the fundamental changes to the global economy over the last 10 years has been the shift in the funding of investment and enterprise from public and institutional capital towards a greater role for private capital.

As a result, individuals, their families, and businesses control an increasing share of the funds that drive investment activity and fuel the global economy.

As investors to the UK seek to maximise the returns on their investment activities, whilst mitigating their exposure to tax and regulatory risk, it is crucially important that the process for achieving these goals is in the hands of professional experts of the highest integrity and experience.

We want to simplify the process for those making an impact

The interaction of global tax, succession and compliance rules can create complex tax and legal issues for internationally mobile clients and our team has extensive expertise in simplifying this process and creating structures that are flexible enough to adapt to the shifting regulations. Our private client team is regarded as one of the best in the world for this, with Senior Partner, Bart Peerless, described as “a colossus of private client law” by the Legal 500 Law Directory.

We provide a fully integrated service to global multipreneurs and their families, family offices, landed estates, private banks, trustees, wealth managers. No other Band 1 Private Wealth law firm has expertise across private client, family, immigration, property, corporate, charities & philanthropy, financial services, art & luxury, and disputes (including tax disputes).  We take the greatest care to ensure that our corporate lawyers are experts in dealing with such matters and the ability to offer a joined up Private Client and Corporate law offering to entrepreneurial clients is, we believe, a significant strength of ours.

Why does this matter?

It means that we look at succession planning for our clients in the broadest possible context, advising on all the different types of structures through which you may choose to hold your wealth – this includes companies and partnerships (including limited liability partnerships), foundations and other offshore structures where appropriate; we can consider the advantages and disadvantages of any succession plan from a range of different perspectives.

Alongside our core advisory practice sits our Private Wealth Disputes team, which specialises in handling all varieties of disputes for families, trustees and beneficiaries. Our Family team advises on preventative measures such as pre- and post-nuptial agreements to help protect assets against matrimonial claims, as well as providing advice on matrimonial breakdown and the issues that flow from that.

What the future holds

We understand the value of nurturing the next generation in our own business, not just to retain talent but also to set the foundations for your family’s advisers into the future. We have one of the largest number of Associates listed in the industry-renowned eprivateclient “Top 35, Under 35” report, which goes some way to show our commitment to our own next generation of lawyers. Our client relationships are built to last generations.
