Wills & Estate Planning
Administration of both international and domestic estates
We’re experienced in administering complex international estates across jurisdictions. This includes advising on settling taxes and distributing assets, whether a will has been left or not. This may involve working with your own advisors in a particular jurisdiction or instructing a local expert from our London base.
Court of Protection
We often advise clients in relation to Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA) and their registration with the Office of the Public Guardian. This avoids the costly and time-consuming process of obtaining a deputyship order if an individual loses capacity.
