Private Client

Advising private clients is at the heart of our business. We have a large and experienced team of lawyers who advise local and international private clients in matters of trusts and estate planning, asset protection, probate and succession, wills and inheritance as well as property, employment, immigration and civil and family law matters.

We work across a range of structures including private, corporate, charitable, purpose and commercial trusts, foundations, family offices, partnerships and companies. We advise on settlor reserved power trusts, private trust company arrangements, pension and employee benefit schemes, estate planning and regulatory advice.

For individuals setting up a business or moving their home and family to Bermuda, we can assist with the relocation process by advising on immigration, housing, property, employment, regulation and all relocation considerations under the relevant local laws.

When it comes to family law, we can assist families and those who advise on planning and structuring their affairs, to mitigate the financial risks that relationship divisions can cause. If a relationship breakdown cannot be avoided, we offer sensitive and comprehensive advice on separation, divorce, domestic partnership dissolution and on any financial and child issues that may arise.

Should any private client matters become contentious, we have an experienced dispute resolution and litigation team on hand to assist.

We like to get to know our clients and understand their individual and business needs as we recognise that each client's circumstances, priorities and goals are unique. We can then apply consistently high standards of service and the appropriate technical expertise to support our clients and ensure their objectives are met.
