Stonehage Fleming Law brings exceptional experience to wealthy international families, providing advice on long-term tax planning and structuring solutions, as well as ensuring day-to-day transactions are properly scrutinised for their tax and regulatory implications.
Because we have supported international families for over forty years, we understand the complicated legal issues our entrepreneurial family clients face every day: multi-dimensional estate planning, trusts, confusing cross-border tax regimes, and conflicting family opinion obstructing the need for decisive and rapid decision-making.
That is why our tax and legal advisers always offer advice that is, first and foremost, pragmatic and commercial, to deliver the essential outcomes you are striving for.
When necessary, we will source counsel from our international network of external advisers. However, we will never delegate responsibility for finding the right solutions.
We understand that the actions you take following our recommendations must operate effectively not only at inception but also for years down the line. We ensure our counsel is always simple to understand and communicate. We believe that wherever there is unnecessary complexity, risk may be around the corner.
Working with the same commitment, flexibility and accessibility that you would expect from your own in-house counsel. Stonehage Fleming’s lawyers are from a diverse range of jurisdictions and disciplines, with senior members of the team acting as strategic technical advisers to your family.
