Overview

Hunters is one of London's leading private client firms, acting for a wide range of individuals, families, family businesses, trustees, charities and landed estates. Its clients include high net worth and ultra-high net worth individuals resident in the UK and overseas.

The highly regarded private client team advises on all aspects of wealth and succession planning, including wills and probate, trusts, mental capacity issues and tax planning, often with an international element. Heritage property is also an area of special expertise, covering advice in connection with historic houses and gardens, surrounding land, works of art and the funding to support them. 

The team provides bespoke advice, tailored to each client's specific situation. For wealthy clients this may include advice on complex structures involving trusts, companies and partnerships. The firm recognises that continuity is key for private clients and a designated partner is personally responsible for each client, an approach which facilitates a strong and trusting relationship between the client and their private client lawyer.

While providing advice on the full ambit of private client matters, the team is complemented by Hunters' other departments, namely family and matrimonial, property, commercial, charities, dispute resolution, employment and art and cultural property, which enables a holistic approach to meet its clients' needs.
