Family Offices



Generally, a family office is an entity that assumes the day-to-day management and administration of the assets and wealth of high net worth individuals or families. Wealth preservation and growth are common objectives when establishing a family office, and clients may consider using such a vehicle to focus on the functions of investment management, tax planning, estate and succession planning, and philanthropic planning.

As clients will often enter into arrangements with professional advisors for wealth management services, we work closely with our corporate practice and funds practice to advise our clients on the structure of their family office, ensuring that such arrangements achieve our clients’ goals and are in compliance with Singapore law.

Where others have given up on such cases in the past, Li Fei goes beyond the call of duty to see the work through, and works with me to provide practicable solutions, using his understanding of the difficulties of multi-jurisdictional legal matters and his thorough knowledge of the law and the Courts in Singapore.”
