Some of the most lauded and complex work CKFT does is on behalf of private individuals. Our lawyers and partners are well versed in litigation and dispute resolution, private client, family and employment law and benefit from a wealth of shared knowledge.
The depth of understanding and involvement afforded to all private cases carefully balances with a cost-conscious approach that underlines the client-focused approach afforded to everything we do. Our successes have seen CKFT consistently placed on the Legal 500 recommendations list and commended by Chambers and Partners for our diligence in these highly sensitive areas.
We provide clear, pragmatic and tailor made advice to all of our clients who include high net worth individuals, successful entrepreneurs, wealthy families, sports professionals, City professionals and media personalities. Many of our clients have international connections and dealings with corporate or trust structures.
Our expert team offers an outstanding talent of partners, consultants and solicitors who are recognised as some of the leading specialists in their field. All our family solicitors are members of Resolution, an association committed to the constructive resolution of family disputes. Our private client team are members of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners. We are also regular contributors to the legal journals.
