Family Office Support

Although many of GSR’s clients are organized as family offices and seek GSR’s counsel from the firm’s various practice areas in the same way an individual client would, GSR also offers clients the opportunity to receive more structured support of a client’s family office when requested.

This service is rendered by providing office arrangements, support staff, and general infrastructure as needed, and it enables a family office to operate at a highly efficient level by virtue of its proximity to and close interaction with the GSR team members involved with the representation.
