Cross-border estates & international succession
We offer estate planning advice to international clients who have connections with a number of different jurisdictions. Many of our clients are nationals of one country but resident in another and own substantial assets in many different jurisdictions.
Our team includes lawyers who have qualified and previously worked on estate and succession planning projects in a wide cross-section of civil and common law jurisdictions.
Our skills and experience in integrated US/UK cross-border planning is extensive, and we have both UK- and US-qualified succession planning lawyers in our offices in the US, London and Geneva.
