Estate administration can be a complicated area, and its complexity is increased when the administration of an estate crosses geographical boundaries and jurisdictions with conflict of law issues. Drawing on many years of experience, we have developed particular expertise in administering the estates of high net worth individuals, which are invariably international in nature with assets located in jurisdictions across the world. We also regularly administer purely UK-based estates.
Whether an estate is UK or international, we undertake all aspects of administration (obtaining local advice where appropriate), including the preparation and submission of probate documents, estate accounts and tax returns. There may also be other issues to deal with, such as the management of disputes and related litigation, both in England and Wales and internationally, which we can deal with seamlessly through our contentious trust and estates team.
