Probate & Administration of Estates

As specialist probate lawyers, we understand the many practical issues and family tensions that arise following a death. We apply a sensitive but professional approach in dealing with the ensuing probate and administration process.

We will guide you through the process and endeavour to make the entire process as straightforward as possible, taking care to approach every stage in a caring and sensitive manner.

Our experienced team can manage and administer the entire estate, including preparing and submitting inheritance tax accounts to HMRC and applying for grants of probate, or simply assisting at key stages of the administration process as and when required.

The international nature of our client base means that we regularly advise on the administration of estates with international assets and dimensions. This can involve dealing with cross border succession laws, conflicts of law principles and double taxation issues; and, where required, liaising with local counsel and other international advisors.

Our aim is to provide a tailored package to meet our clients’ individual needs, that can adapt over time and take account of their changing circumstances.
