Firm Overview:
Addleshaw Goddard is a law firm which believes good business depends on good advice – and has been helping our clients succeed for over 240 years. Headquartered in the United Kingdom and with offices across the world in Europe, Asia and the Middle East, many of the world’s most recognised and respected people and businesses come to Addleshaw Goddard for imaginative solutions to pivotal problems. This is why we have been recognised as Private Equity Firm of the Year 2019, Dispute Resolution Firm of the Year 2019, and Real Estate Firm of the Year 2019. With over 260 partners and 1916 people across our global offices, our clients rely on us to get things done.
Addleshaw Goddard has one of the UK’s most significant private client groups, with trusted advisers guiding ultra-and high-net-worth individuals, corporate entities, family offices, trust companies and charities all of whom benefit from its unique position within a large, commercial law firm, offering expertise across a wide range disciplines. The private capital group has enjoyed continued success in several areas of HNW in recognition of the bespoke services and solutions provided on both a national and international scale - it has offices in the UK’s key commercial centres, as well as Asia and the GCC. Additionally, where the firm doesn’t have offices, it works with firms well known to it, to deliver an international capability whenever and wherever required. Expertise and experience ranges from personal estate planning through to the management of complex, multimillion-pound estates and trusts. It also has extensive experience of complex trust and estate disputes/litigation as well as experience of offshore tax planning structures.

HNW Areas of Practice:
Trusts:
AG advises on the increasingly complex inheritance tax and capital gains tax implications of creating trusts; drafts the appropriate trust documents; and advises on the restructuring of existing trusts to meet family, tax business succession and other objectives. It acts for the trustees of more than 200 trusts, including both charitable and private family trusts, which hold over £1 billion of trust assets.

Contentious Trusts & Estates:
Clients benefit from a substantial contentious trusts and estates practice which regularly acts on cross-border matters and also in relation to disputes involving trusts and trustees (of private trusts) and litigation and disputes arising after the death of an individual. International Issues: The practice has considerable expertise in advising both UK residents and non-UK residents on their UK tax position — and on offshore structures, where appropriate. It is well-versed in coordinating advice in different jurisdictions and tapping into a network of international offices, to ensure a complete approach to asset protection and succession planning.

Tax & Succession Planning:
The private capital group is part of AG’s marketleading corporate department, regularly advising ultra- and high-net-worth individuals, families and trusts on significant business succession and planning opportunities. The ability to offer leading private client and corporate services under one roof differentiates the firm in the marketplace and makes AG a one-stop shop for families and their business interests.

Lasting Powers of Attorney:
The team helps draft lasting powers of attorney that allow appointed individuals to manage a person’s affairs and healthcare issues in a way that they approve, if they become unable to do so themselves. It has extensive experience in registering existing enduring power of attorneys and lasting power of attorneys, as well as in making applications to the Office of the Public Guardian and the Court of Protection.

Wills, Probate & Estates:
The AG team advises ultra- and high-net-worth individuals on making tax efficient wills as well as in advising on the full range of issues relating to the administration of a deceased’s estate. If the deceased made a tax planning or complex trust-based will, the team will assist in setting up any trusts created by it and also provide inheritance tax and capital gains tax advice, as appropriate.

Reputation Protection:
The team provides round-the-clock advice to organisations and high profile individuals in business, public life, the arts, entertainment and sport at the prepublication stage, as well as during and following publication when damage needs to be prevented or mitigated, and the media persuaded to set the record straight.

Charities & Not for Profit Organisations:
The team acts for over 100 organisations, including household names and smaller local charities and public service providers and family grant-giving bodies. The firm advises on a range of work including fundraising, advising on structure and relationships with trading subsidiaries, taxation, and on issues of governance and trustees’ duties and responsibilities.
