I worked with Luke Marshall in relation to the sale of Canadian shares held by my deceased parent. He was completely clear, professional and empathetic throughout.

The process was very complex but Luke guided us with calm authority and clear instructions. In summary he did an outstanding job.

It has been very reassuring to have Luke Marshall at Lester Aldridge dealing with the administration of my late father’s offshore assets.

From the outset, there was clarity in terms of the steps required to obtain Probate as well as in terms of fees.

Luke was always quick in answering any question, acknowledging receipt of documents sent by courier to LA or providing necessary copies of documents or even examples of the documents to be obtained from the SA High Court. Luke, thank you for your patience and assistance in sorting all the complications we encountered along the way."Close quote

Over a period of 18 months, Luke Marshall of Lester Aldridge helped with an inheritance from an Aunt who had lived all her life in South Africa. An already complicated situation was made more complicated by communications between Luke and us having to be conducted across 4 countries and 3 continents. Legal documents supplied by us were in multiple languages and had to pass through UK compliance checks. Luke and his colleagues did a marvellous job dealing with all this... After more than 260 emails crossing the continents, all ended well and we are grateful to all at Lester Aldridge for how they dealt with our case. Close quote
