Whitnell is pleased to announce that Robert Legan is now leading the Family Office Service team. His background in working with ultra-affluent families made him the obvious choice for this role. For those who may not be aware, the Family Office Service team at Whitnell works with a select group of ultra-affluent families who have complex financial needs. 

As families grow in wealth, they often begin to share ownership of assets among numerous nuclear families across multiple generations. This requires harmonizing the goals of various family members across generational boundaries and between family lines. Family leaders often turn to specialized professional advisors including attorneys, accountants, investment consultants and insurance specialists. But even this can create complications. Coordinating the efforts of numerous professional advisors requires management. Ultra-affluent families need a strategic partner to get all advisors on the same page and pulling in one direction. This is why Whitnell provides Family Office Services.
