Osborne Clarke launches dedicated international private wealth practice


International legal practice, Osborne Clarke has launched a dedicated private wealth practice for high net worth individuals and families across the world.

The practice is led by new partners Stuart Janaway and Andrew Goodman, with further appointments to follow throughout 2015.

Goodman joins Osborne Clarke from Taylor Wessing, where he was a Partner in its Private Client Group. Janaway joins Osborne Clarke from a boutique private client firm, New Quadrant Partners, where he was a partner. They will serve the firm’s UK and international clients across Osborne Clarke’s offices.

The practice will provide the full range of private client advice, including international tax and estate planning, immigration, property advice and, when needed, litigation support. The team will work closely with other departments of the firm to provide seamless advice to clients on their personal, business and charitable concerns.

January says: “Osborne Clarke has a terrific reputation for representing entrepreneurial and fast growing businesses.  Managing the wealth they generate is an important part of the advice and support the firm provides.  Both Andrew and I are excited by the opportunity to build a dedicated private client practice that reflects the entrepreneurial approach of the firm.”

Ray Berg, UK Managing Partner, Osborne Clarke, says: “Stuart and Andrew's arrival at Osborne Clarke is the first step in creating a new, innovative private client offering that reflects the culture and approach of our firm.  Andrew and Stuart both have first class reputations and are well-known and respected in the industry.  We look forward to the contributions they will bring.”

Goodman brings to Osborne Clarke considerable expertise and experience in advising UHNW individuals and their families.  He regularly acts for multinational families with cross-border interests on investment structures and succession planning, as well as representing trustees in the UK, Jersey, Guernsey, Switzerland and the Cayman Islands. Andrew also has extensive experience in philanthropy, establishing and advising family foundations and larger charities alike.

Janaway also acts for UHNW international families, trust companies, charities and private banks.  He spent part of his career at AllianceBernstein, a large US investment management company, where he was head of its UK private client business, and has subsequently built a strong US private client base.  He also has significant experience in advising on private investment funds and tax efficient investment structures.
