Private wealth

Stephenson Harwood has been looking after the legal needs of wealthy individuals and their families for nearly 200 years. We have always understood that our private clients require a wide range of services, beyond that which is offered by the traditional ‘private client’ firms. This is because our clients are typically entrepreneurial, international and with complex, frequently international, interests.
