Our team sensitively and efficiently administers UK and non-UK estates, dealing with all tax issues, including the variation of Wills and the implementation of post-death tax-saving and asset protection strategies.
What do we do? Anything and everything that is required following a death:
obtaining grants of representation both offshore (in conjunction with local lawyers) and onshore
advising on complex succession issues;
advising personal representatives (together or individually) on their responsibilities
providing a full tax compliance service in estate administration and to ensure the most tax-effective devolution of the estate, and
advising on beneficiary rights.
We are frequently asked to wind up and co-ordinate international estates, often with assets of substantial value held in a variety of jurisdictions. These will often involve complex succession law, tax and family issues.
