CLA leader Robin Clifford reports a year of change: ‘We’re much more focused on private client work linking with family offices and personal advisers to augment traditional wealth management with personal and asset protection,’ he tells us. A particular highlight for the former Army officer was ‘designing and implementing a multi-jurisdiction asset recovery project’. Clifford also tells us that there is ‘increasing understanding of the vulnerabilities of superyachts to cyber-attack and a growing willingness to employ innovation to address the problem’. It’s all of a piece with a rapidly changing world. ‘We are also seeing more requests to check professional and personal online and social media vulnerability,’ he explains.
