What Is a Private Client Solicitor?

If you require bespoke legal advice pertaining to a vast range of matters, especially those consisting of high-worth assets, you’ll want to seek the help of a private client solicitor.

Private client solicitors work with individuals and families, providing legal advice on matters such as investments, estate management, taxation and wills. Private clients are usually high-net-worth or ultra-high-net-worth individuals or landowners who possess large amounts of property and other assets. Private client solicitors also tend to deal with charities, which may be small, non-profit associations or large organisations that run like fully-fledged businesses and have substantial budgets.

How Can a Private Client Solicitor Assist You?

The main objective of a private client solicitor is to provide advice that will help you maintain, build and protect wealth and establish trusts. They will also offer guidance on matters such as capital gains tax and inheritance tax. For high-net-worth individuals or families, a private client solicitor is an essential resource for both short and long-term financial stability and an ideal solution when issues should arise. 

While some may assume that a private client solicitor only plays a role in high-net-worth divorces or other legal disputes, it should be noted that our team of vastly experienced, immensely skilled family lawyers can also be utilised for the matters we mentioned above.
