Private client review:

Rosalyn Breedy is an example of exactly what every lawyer should be, but seldom are. She is the epitome of the human face of the law, being extremely knowledgeable, balanced and clear in her thought process and explanation. She will always go the extra mile for her clients and is enthusiastic and encouraging in my endeavours to start a new business while also waiving a red flag if I begin to drift off piste. She extricated me from two very difficult potential partners and has introduced me to others who might be of use in the future. And I have introduced her to new clients, in the certain knowledge that they will be in safe and brilliant hands. She is also a very, very nice person! Lady Astor of Hever

I have worked with Ros for many years and believe that she has the rare ability to think strategically and practically without ever losing sight of the impact on the people involved in the issue. This gives her the edge when working with complex family wealth and family business issues and one of the reasons why we have recommended her to work with our most sophisticated clients on several occasions.

Peer review:

I engaged Rosalyn Breedy to help me negotiate a very difficult separation from my ex-business partner. She was an outstanding professional, who impressed me throughout the process with her intelligence, extensive grasp and clear explanation of legal precedent, willingness to work at all hours, and her insight and empathy. Rosalyn brought a very human element to the proceeding which helped me understand the many facets of the issue and was critical in the successful outcome of the negotiation. She was masterful in her ability to understand the complex dynamics at work and was a first-rate adviser throughout.

Tailoring a private OEIC to match the individual family's investment needs

A private open-ended investment company(OEIC) was tailored to match the individual family's investment needs. Individual sub-funds being tailored to suit the varying income and capital requirements of each branch of the family. In addition to being an onshore tax efficient vehicle the family derived the following benefits:

- Privacy when investing with underlying managers only the fund number is required as the vehicle is FCA authorised, removing the need for copious KYC documents being sent to underlying managers in addition to a simplified CRS and FATCA process.

- A committee was set up to oversee the investment strategy and to monitor and mitigate risk

- Each family member received audited accounts and derived comfort from that

- The family were able to benefit from institutional pricing and being able to control the relationship with investment managers better.

Advice was given on establishment, governance, set up and implementation as well as  ongoing review  and negotiation of underlying agreements and fund documents.
