In a world that can see senior executives relocated to the other side of the world and exposed to director's duties and other regulation and investigations, as well as needing to manage a plethora of personal assets, our team of experts can support you through all of that enabling you to focus on your job and family.
We understand the wide-ranging needs of senior executives, particularly those who work in financial services and private equity, and how issues and legal considerations can intersect their business and personal lives. We bring together the best minds across employment, immigration, corporate and commercial and private wealth and tax to support you on the legal issues you need to consider as a senior executive.
How we can support you
We will always prioritise your needs and ensure the most pressing are dealt with quickly and efficiently. It might be that you have been recruited in a new business and need to relocate to the UK or another jurisdiction or on the other hand, you need to exit a business and negotiate a settlement package which protects your right to remain in the UK. Perhaps you have been exposed to an investigation or the Senior Managers and Certification Regime. Our experts in employment and immigration law can work with you to navigate these and many other scenarios to ensure the best outcome for you.
As regulation intensifies, senior executives, particularly those in financial services, are more at risk than ever before and need to be able to understand and comply with director’s duties and other corporate governance regulations. We are able to support you on the full gamut of corporate advisory issues that may arise during your employment.
These issues are intertwined with the need to ensure your personal assets are working hard for you, as well as being structured in an appropriate manner. Advice on asset structuring, estate planning and matrimonial issues such as pre-nuptial agreements, as well as tax, can be seamlessly integrated with the advice we provide in relation to your business matters. Both areas of your life need to work in harmony to ensure you, your family and your assets are protected.
