Our instructions were initially to provide a second Opinion on French inheritance law in relation to an issue arising in the case. The deceased had remarried and made a Will leaving everything to his new wife "C". His Estate included a property in France held in the names of the deceased and his former wife. Subsequently we were asked to attend a mediation attended by the parties and their solicitors and respective counsel so as to provide advice and comment to the children's advisers prior to any agreement being entered it.
