Private client advisory

We understand that as your family and businesses grow, you need to plan for growth, protection from creditors and succession. Working closely with our network of external tax and financial advisors as well as trust corporations, our Singapore team is well placed to guide you in your business succession and personal wealth planning.

Our dedicated team will assist you in developing and implementing a business succession plan to ensure strategic ownership as well as management succession to ensure continuity of your business into the next generation.

We will guide you through establishing your personal wealth planning to protect your assets from creditors, provide for maintenance, health and education needs, make provision for charitable giving and ensure succession of your wealth into the hands of the next generation through inter vivos gifts, trust structures, foundations and wills. We assist in the extraction of grants or letters of administration or probate and we work with executors or corporate trustees in the administration of the estate and distribution of assets to the beneficiaries.

When disputes among business partners or family arise, we draw on our close relationships with accountants, private investigators and forensic scientists to trace assets and obtain evidence to establish your rights. Our Litigation team is able to represent you in disputes involving the interpretation and effect of documents such as wills, trust deeds, letters of wishes and lasting powers of attorney, in contentious estate and trust matters as well as breach of fiduciary duties.

We work closely with our Matrimonial and Family practice group, especially when advising on matters involving contentious relationships, regarding the preservation of assets and provision for children. The Corporate practice group also provides support when the planning involves migration, visas, citizenship or permanent resident status.
