Private Wealth, COVID-19 & Business

By Gemma Sumsion, August 2020

Our mission is simple: to provide excellent, trusted and truly personal legal services. Key to our success at Goughs is our ability to adapt to ever-changing landscapes. We recognised the need for a different approach to client care and in 2017 introduced ‘Sectors’ to the firm.

What does this mean?

Our approach is different. We look through your eyes, we think about your needs and take the time to understand your world. You can rest assured that our sector specialists will provide pragmatic and practical solutions that will always meet your needs.

Wealth & business through a pandemic

Our expert team provides advice on all aspects of wealth planning for high net worth individuals. We take the time to understand you and your needs before providing personal and tailored advice. In order to make commercially sound decisions that protect you, your business and your future, you must seek the best legal advice available.  

We are proud to specialise in all areas of non residential land and property acquisitions and disposals as well as business succession planning, including business restructures, refinance arrangements and preparing shareholder and partnership agreements. 

Covid-19 has been a time of concern and reflection for all, including those looking to protect their business and their future.  It has also been a time for new ideas and diversification. We are seeing many clients grasping these opportunities and really thriving, we are proud to be a part of their business and journey in making such exciting new ventures come to life. Our experienced and dedicated team will work closely with you to ensure you realise your desired outcome for all commercial matters.
