Help and Guidance when you need it most.
Living and working abroad means accounting for the law in more than one country. We work closely with our network of specialist lawyers and consultants abroad so that you can ensure you are legally covered, no matter where you live or what situation you may find yourself in.
While much of the information here makes reference to people from the U.K one should still make a will in their home country as well as a separate will in the country that is considered their second home or main residence.

Wills, Estates and Trusts
If you live or work abroad, it is vitally important that you have your affairs in order - both in the U.K and in the country you are currently residing in. If you own property or a run a business abroad, you will need to ensure you are legally covered.
Probate and Probate Disputes
When a person dies abroad, you have the added complication of sorting out their affairs in a language you don’t speak, in a legal system you are not familiar with. Our solicitors will work closely with the legal system abroad to help you settle matters quickly. We can also help with Contested Probate and Intestacy cases.
