Boodle Hatfield has been supporting business families since 1722 and is uniquely placed to offer a holistic legal, tax and wealth structuring service to support our clients from the Middle East, with Arabic speaking lawyers across our key practice areas.

We provide clients from the Middle East with sophisticated advice ranging from the tax implications of immigration/investment in the UK, structuring the ownership of their private and business assets to achieve their succession and asset protection objectives as well as advising them on the establishment of pooled investment vehicles and family offices. Our lawyers have expertise in Sharia compliant wealth structuring, incorporating Sharia compliant succession and investment criteria in asset-holding structures.
 
We have specialist expertise in a range of complementary areas ranging from advising on the acquisition and holding of assets such as art, aircraft and yachts through to working with business-owning families to ensure a smooth transition of the business to the next generation. Our lawyers are well versed in the challenges faced by family businesses and are well-equipped to provide guidance on the right governance structure for the family and the business.
 
Investment by Middle Eastern clients into UK residential and commercial real estate goes from strength to strength and we combine an unrivalled understanding of those markets in the UK and the tax implications for overseas investors. We can also leverage our extensive network to provide our clients with first class connections with London agents and private banks.
