Our leading Private Client Practice specialises in providing tax, estate planning, wealth preservation and asset protection services to domestic and international individuals and families.
We are consistently sought out by leading international private client firms, private banks and other intermediaries to act as Irish advisors.
When dealing with private individuals and their families, our objective is to understand their immediate and longer-term aims so that we can help them achieve their objectives in a timely and orderly fashion. We work closely with our corporate colleagues to provide integrated tax and legal solutions for families and their businesses.
We also advise Irish and offshore trustees on all issues affecting them, including their tax obligations, and assist in making disclosures as required. We advise a wide range of charitable bodies in relation to their activities. We pride ourselves on a client-driven commercial approach.
We have significant experience advising on will disputes, will challenges and the mediation of estate disputes. We have advised on Section 117 cases, where claimants have been left out of a will or are challenging the provision made for them.
We are conscious of the effects of family relationships on business, partnerships, trusts and pensions. We always aim to adopt a positive, constructive and commercial approach to obtain the best possible result.
In addition to acting in many of the leading court cases in this field, we also have wide-ranging experience of negotiating complex settlements and of using alternative dispute resolution including mediation and collaborative law.
We also provide a sector leading relocation advisory service addressing immigration, property and tax issues of both executives and private wealth clients relocating to Ireland.
We advise on the administration of complex Irish estates, often with assets and beneficiaries across multiple jurisdictions.
