Shearman & Sterling’s multidisciplinary team of family office lawyers deeply understands the complexities and the challenges – legal, business and personal – involved in family ownership. We are experienced in advising single- and multi-family offices, private clients and family-run businesses on all of their legal, tax, regulatory, compliance, trusts and estates, and business needs across the globe.
We provide guidance to families and their investment teams as they navigate decisions related to their investment portfolios, domestic and international estate and tax planning, wealth management, philanthropy, family governance, trust administration and multi-generational issues. Serving as trusted advisors to our clients, we offer a highly responsive and comprehensive service that helps enterprising families navigate the new economy and achieve multigenerational success.
Recognizing that no two family offices are the same, we make it a priority to establish a meaningful relationship with our clients to help them achieve enduring enterprises, sustainable wealth and long lasting social impact, while maintaining an exceptional degree of privacy and discretion.
