Private Wealth

Overview
Intelligent structure and strategy to protect your net worth now and in the future

Hesketh Henry has a specialist team for estate planning, wealth management and relationship property issues. The services we offer for protecting personal wealth are relevant to individuals, families and owners of small-to-medium sized businesses.

Unlike smaller law firms, where lawyers need to work across multiple areas of law, our private wealth lawyers are dedicated solely to legal advice and services that are connected to protecting and growing private wealth. Their level of specialisation has made them fast and efficient, especially when it comes to legal planning for complex family trust and succession arrangements.

You can trust your Hesketh Henry wealth management lawyer to quickly understand your current situation and short, medium and long-term goals. These will help to shape an action plan that looks after your best interests.

Hesketh Henry’s private wealth team can be engaged to assist with estate planning, forming, restructuring and administering any type of trust, including international trusts, enduring powers of attorney; insurance advice; succession planning and wills  and contracts related to the Property (Relationships) Act 1976.
