Boutique Services

Cohesive, Comprehensive and Collaborative.

Harbord & Co often provide bespoke personal advice to individuals, families, estates, trusts, family businesses, educational establishments, and charities. These are often referred to as being Boutique Services as they are individual and tailored.

In dealing with sensitive matters such as the Law of Confidence, often referred to as ‘gagging orders’, our clients have often said they were not aware that we acted in those areas of Law, and rightly so!! Protection of these sensitive interests, if properly done, would suggest that nobody should be aware of their existence. Early advice in these matters is essential to their success.
