Globally Speaking

Wedlake Bell’s insights on issues affecting the international private client community

Globally Speaking is a biannual ebulletin from our Private Client team on a wide range of trending issues relevant to the private client, family office and trustee community with an offshore focus.

Specialist lawyers within our Private Client team provide commentary on issues involving:

  • non-UK domiciled individuals and/or non-UK resident individuals with UK investments, from a UK tax and estate planning perspective;
  • offshore trusts and other wealth planning structures;
  • family offices for internationally-mobile families;
  • ownership of high-value UK property;  
  • art and luxury assets;
  • succession planning for global family businesses; and
  • family governance, and responsible and sustainable stewardship, of internationally-held wealth.

Our clients’ cross-border needs on these themes inevitably involve legal advice on more than one area of law and we provide combined thought leadership across the firm’s four practice groups model, bringing in expertise from lawyers including those in our Residential Property, Commercial Property, Family, Corporate, Disputes, Insolvency and Restructuring, and Pensions teams.
