The Legal Lifetime Journey – the impact on family financial planning

How can financial planning help my career?

Financial Planning allows you to maximise the opportunities presented by the various stages of your career and make use of the financial levers through these important transitions; leaving you free to focus on your work demands. Our trusted expertise has given many families peace of mind that they can fulfil their family and working ambitions safe in the knowledge that they are financially secure and can live their best lives.

VWM has been working alongside senior partners, QCs and Judges for over 16 years and our award winning team works closely with equity partner transitions, those taking Silk and those moving to the judiciary.

Typical questions

  • How best can I deal with income irregularity and a twice yearly tax bill payment?
  • Can I afford to move to the judiciary and when? How will this impact my family’s finances?
  • At what point will I be financially independent, selecting the work I want safe in the knowledge that I can enjoy the lifestyle I and my family want?
  • How will taking Silk affect my family finances and the path to financial independence?
  • What can I do now to optimise my family’s financial future so that I can take advantage of the opportunities that come my way professionally?
