Private Wealth Advisory

We have extensive experience advising successful individuals – entrepreneurs, executives, public figures, artists and athletes – on a broad range of multi-jurisdictional matters, from re-domiciliation, wealth structuring to legacy planning.

We have broad experience setting up and administrating structures involving both operational (e.g. companies, joint ventures) and non-operational (e.g. real estate, intellectual property, yachts and aircrafts, art) assets, and devising protection and legacy planning strategies around them – whether by way of wills, trusts, foundation or a combination of such tools.

We have an established reputation and substantial track-record of successfully assisting clients in securing residency in the UAE and other attractive tax jurisdictions, as well as alternative citizenships in safe jurisdictions away from geopolitical turmoil. We get personally involved all the way to make a process as stress-free as possible, and can support our clients in all aspects of their immigration.
