BLP Launches Cross-Border Family Asset Protection Team
International law firm Berwin Leighton Paisner (BLP) has launched a new Family Asset Protection team to provide cross-border and corporate family law expertise to high net worth (HNW) ultra-high net worth (UHNW) clients in London and Hong Kong. The team will be led by Marcus Dearle, Partner and Head of Family Asset Protection.
” Marcus has a proven track record of success in Hong Kong, having advised Florence Tsang in the HK$1.2bn divorce case “
The team will advise on all areas of relationship breakdown with a focus on international pre and post-nuptial agreements (PNAs), and divorce and trust matters. It will offer family relationship protection strategies.
Marcus Dearle, Partner and Head of Family Asset Protection, said: “The Family Asset Protection team will advise HNW and UHNW clients on the full range of complex family law cases usually with an international element, dealing with issues from pre-nuptial agreements (PNAs) to corporate and dynastic trust structuring of pre-marital and marital assets – including HNW/UHNW commercial and residential international real estate. But it is a practice with a difference. BLP Family Asset Protection is not just about asset protection. It is about family protection.”
Elizabeth Bradley, Partner and Global Head of Tax, said, “Marcus has a proven track record of success in Hong Kong, having advised Florence Tsang in the HK$1.2bn divorce case. We have responded to the needs of HNW and UHNW clients with the introduction of this (Family Asset Protection) team and to ensure BLP continues to be at the forefront of family law.”
