Our Services

For private clients, we offer individuals, families and entrepreneurs the tools and advice to manage their personal affairs through tax, succession and estate planning advice across multiple jurisdictions. Our teams work across borders and practice areas to deliver an integrated service, whether you require legal, investment or fiduciary services as an individual or for a family office and both onshore and offshore.


The climate for private wealth protection is constantly changing. This change comes from political upheaval in the aftermath of the economic crisis, geopolitical tensions in several regions globally, implementation of new tax rules and the global drive towards automated exchange of financial information on individuals. Keeping pace with change is a challenge; we aim higher and consistently deliver solutions that keep our client’s at least one step ahead.


We have considerable experience advising entrepreneurs on structuring start-up enterprises in the technology and distribution sectors and offer tailored services to qualifying new ventures which show promise and are backed by the commitment of focused, energetic and domain experienced founders.


Central to our philosophy is the belief that true partnership with our clients in helping them achieving their financial objectives is how objectives are achieved. We seek to make measurable contributions without compromise.

Legal services


SOLV tax and trust lawyers are highly qualified and innovative professionals, many of whom are multi-lingual and qualified in two or more jurisdictions.

Specialisations include:


  • Cross-border transactions and taxation
  • Asset protection structures
  • Structured property ownership and investment
    yacht and aircraft acquisitions and operation
  • Citizenship, residence, emigration and immigration in multiple jurisdictions


Our work often involves creation of the optimum structure for a new business acquisition or the restructuring an existing operation to realise value from underutilised assets in an enterprise.

We have frequently created innovative licensing opportunities in relation to intangible assets such as intellectual property and know how rights. Our in-depth understanding of global business tax systems and how they can interface with selected tax-efficient jurisdictions (both on shore and offshore) enables us to offer our clients creative and wealth protecting tax minimisation solutions.

Family office Services

SOLV specialises in work with HNW families for whom we provide a broad spectrum of wealth structuring and international family office services, ranging from legal advice, physical asset acquisition and management, the set-up and management of asset holding and succession structures, real asset investment advisory services, reporting and fiduciary services as well as managing electronic and data security protocols between family members.



SOLV can establish a virtual family office, either comprehensively or as a consultant to family members. This service is tailored to the needs of each family and the regulatory environment which is relevant to their circumstances.



Smaller family structures may choose simply to “buy in” administrative, corporate, trust and compliance services and legal expertise, all of which are offered by SOLV as and when required. We provide a single interface for the family for all of their day-to-day administrative affairs.
