The theme of the 2014 Legal Week International Private Client Forum was 'Navigating through instability'. The role of the international private client adviser has always been to anticipate risk and protect against it. Historically, in many jurisdictions those risks may have been limited to economic, tax and family conflict. In some countries the exposure was more dramatic and included political instability, potential nationalization of assets, personal safety and armed conflict.

We discussed not only tax and succession planning, but reputation protection, preservation of privacy, safeguarding against kidnapping and physical risk, and how to move families and wealth to safe havens. The most difficult question to answer was what to do if the perceived safe havens turn dangerous. That has happened throughout history, and cautious clients and advisers must consider the possibility of it happening again.
