Aitken Partners today launched a new definition of its brand with the creation of Aitken Private and Aitken Business.
The firm’s managing partner, Andrew Blogg, promised a new level of understanding.
“Aitken Partners is uniquely placed to understand the differing needs of private clients and business clients, having represented the interests of and advised both for more than 80 years. The requirements of a client who has a stake in a business and a personal connection to its past and future, as compared to a client who answers to a board of management or directors are often different, but the required outcome is the same.
“You need success… you need your lawyers to understand you.
“Aitken Private and Aitken Business have been formed to recognise the differences in providing advice to private clients and business clients.”
To many law firms, private client services are represented by providing personal services advice such as wills and estates (including litigation), trusts, powers of attorney, family law, property and conveyancing, asset protection, taxation and superannuation, succession and estate planning. We provide those services, but we view our private client services more broadly, encompassing the full range of the legal services to family businesses and other SMEs where the owner is a stakeholder.
Aitken Business provides a targeted range of services to clients in industries such as transport, aged care and retirement, franchising, manufacturing, property, food and hospitality. We provide advice around corporate governance issues and directors’ responsibilities, mergers & acquisitions, joint ventures, employment law, intellectual property, litigation & dispute resolution, general contracts and agreements, competition law and trade practices, business restructuring, insolvency and taxation.
