Offshore and International
We advise clients on how best to structure their wealth offshore, working closely with trustees and family offices in a number of jurisdictions on the establishment and ongoing administration of trust and corporate structures – including the set-up of private trust companies.
We are experts in the creation and governance of wealth planning structures meaning we can help wealthy international families preserve their wealth and ensure its safe stewardship through generations.
We advise non-domiciliaries on core UK taxes (income tax, capital gains tax and inheritance tax) and, through our membership of USLAW and TELFA, we have links with advisers in foreign jurisdictions that mean we can provide genuine multi-jurisdictional solutions.
Our team has extensive experience in cross border probate, Will drafting and asset holding structures, taking into account the succession laws of the countries concerned and estate tax implications where spouses or couples have different domiciles or citizenship.
We act for clients who are domiciled in the UK as well as many non-UK domiciliaries who are either resident in the UK, spend part of the year in the UK, have assets located in the UK or have family interests here. We provide specialist immigration and nationality advice for our clients in the UK and as members of the legal networks Trans European Law Firms Alliance (TELFA) and USLAW, we are well positioned to advise such international clients on international immigration and cross-border issues whether that is as regards succession and estate planning, asset protection or structuring UK or global investments.
