Svetlova LLP is a law firm located in central London, shaped by the unique and sophisticated demands of its clients. We represent individuals, companies, real estate and private equity funds, developers, royal families and charities. Our clients value us for our personal approach to their legal needs and our ability to solve problems and close transactions quickly.
Our clients are dynamic and sophisticated, often living in multiple jurisdictions. We understand the mindset of our international clientele and tailor our advice accordingly. Our clients have an appetite for investment in and relocation to the UK. Some want to move to Britain and establish their families here, others simply favour London as a hub for investing capital. We have the vision and ingenuity to make all of this happen seamlessly.
Bespoke services under one roof
We are highly regarded in our areas of expertise. A significant proportion of our clients are ultra-high net worth individuals and business owners from the CIS and other countries around the world. We have collaborated with UBS bank on a research project called “The Wealth Creators” with publications of our findings over the last 5 years. Our London lawyers offer a full range of services under one roof. Instead of dealing with lawyers at several firms or departments to meet the needs of your family or your business, we can talk you through all of your legal needs, be it property, immigration, citizenship by investment, intellectual property or corporate work, and connect you with essential contacts in London as soon as you arrive.
We are recognised as specialists in the private wealth industry. We often comment on TV, radio and in print on the various legal subjects. Our recent appearances included BBC news, ITV news, Russia Today, The Voice of Russia, The Lawyer Magazine and other publications. We have been shortlisted as the “Best Law Firm of the Year” by Spears Wealth.
Over the years our clients have asked for our help in finding the right property – in response to this, we have created a boutique property search service through our partner consultants.
We strive to build long-term relationships with our clients, and over the years have become personal friends to many clients and their children. Inevitably this enables us to provide a more streamlined, commercially sensitive service. We often connect our clients to their next opportunity.
Russian advice: facilitating investment and wealth protection
A high proportion of our clients are Russian speakers; we are too. As international lawyers, we are ideally placed to facilitate UK residential and commercial property investment, including off-plan investments in new build developments. Over the years, we have built close relations with major UK developers and know their developments extremely well. This means that the process of buying a property will be smooth, efficient and competitive. We also advise on the acquisition of second citizenship and immigration applications for high net worth investors and entrepreneurs. We provide specialised advice in investor and entrepreneur visas and in St. Kitts and Nevis, Dominica and Malta citizenships.
For CIS citizens and other international clients, a key part of our work involves the establishment and management of successful trusts and foundations, ensuring that family wealth is ring-fenced and safeguarded for generations to come.
Sharing risk: our unique approach to fees
We believe in being honest and open with our clients. We share risks and rewards with you. Therefore, our fees are discussed and agreed with you upfront, and we work exclusively on a fixed-fee basis. This gives you certainty and allows you to plan and budget for the future.
