Company Formation and administration


Possessing their own legal personality, companies may be employed on a stand-alone basis or make up part of a larger wealth planning structure. They have a myriad of applications in both a private wealth and commercial context.

Among other things, a company;

  • may assume the ownership of a wide range of assets, including investments, real estate and objets d’art, as well as other companies.
  • is often used as a vehicle by those pursuing a special purpose.
  • may afford enhanced levels of confidentiality.
  • may be used to mitigate specific or general risks.
  • may assist those seeking to manage exposure to tax.
