Cross-border succession, capacity and tax

Cross border succession capacity and tax

We give advice about the cross-border issues that arise when someone owns assets in more than one country, or has some other connection with a foreign jurisdiction - for example, when their spouse or civil partner comes from another country, or when their children live or work abroad.

Areas of law on which we offer specialist advice include:

Our team

Our team of specialist lawyers have outstanding expertise and a wealth of experience dealing with cross-border issues. Members of the team are part of the Brussels EU Commission Experts Group and have contributed to leading textbooks in this area of law. Richard Frimston is listed as a Leading Individual by The Legal 500 (2023) in cross-border estates and capacity matters.

Our approach

We offer sensible, practical and technically-reliable advice. Our fees are highly competitive compared to those of other central. London competitors with similar levels of expertise. We have a strong reputation in the field. Many of our clients are referred to us from City law firms. The breadth of the firm's expertise means we can offer integrated, joined-up advice to clients with complex problems. 

Charging information

Charges are usually based on our hourly rates plus administrative charges and disbursements. We will provide you with an initial estimate of your likely legal costs and will update this as your requirements or the circumstances of the work change.

We would be pleased to discuss your requirements and produce a costs estimate accordingly based on the type and complexity of the work involved.
