Main Areas Of Practice


Our expert cross-border estate-planning solicitors provide advice tailored to fit each individual situation.
In particular, we offer expertise in:

Acquisition of UK real estate

We can advise on the acquisition of real estate by overseas investors, individuals and companies who are not based in the UK.

Wills for cross-border estates

We can prepare Wills, taking into account where the individual intends to live out their days, the jurisdictions in which assets are situated and where the family and other beneficiaries are located.

Involving specialists in other jurisdictions

Liaising with estate planning solicitors in other jurisdictions to ensure that appropriate advice is sought where the asset is located taking into account local laws and succession regimes which may apply.

Probate administration

Estate administration where UK assets require a UK Grant of Probate to be obtained or where there are foreign assets in relation to which the UK Grant of Probate can be resealed or a foreign Grant of Probate obtained by local estate planning solicitors.
