  • Administering estates with assets based in the UK, Jersey, Guernsey, the Isle of Man, the Republic of Ireland, North America and most major jurisdictions;
  • Arranging foreign affidavits of law;
  • Advising on death duties, residency and succession laws, and cross border legal issues and conflicts of law;
  • Preparing international wills and advising on how best to structure them;
