Richard Frimston, partner and head of the private client group, has co-authored his latest book entitled Commentaire du règlement sur les succession.

A commentary on the new EU Succession Regulation and available in three languages (English, French and German), Richard's book explores applicable law, enforcement of decisions, the European Certificate of Succession as well as general and final provisions made.

Richard commented "The EU Succession Regulation finally becomes fully effective on 17 August 2015 and will bring about a sea change in estate planning in Europe. This commentary attempts to make the new Regulation more accessible for a wide range of professionals".

Richard advises on wills, probate, tax planning, cross-border estates and international private law issues; and is a Notary Public.

Recognised as a 'most highly regarded individual' by Who's Who Legal Private Client 2014 for his global expertise and winning the Geoffrey Shindler Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Profession at the 2014/15 STEP Private Client Awards, Richard is regularly contacted by the media and industry bodies as an expert in his field.

The French edition is available on the Dalloz website from 15 April 2015; the English and German versions are available from June 2015 on the Otto Schmidt website.
