Foreign Probate and Succession Rules

International estates can give rise to difficulties in dealing with foreign probate offices and different succession rules. We can assist in obtaining Grants of Probate in other countries or re-sealing English Grants.


Association of European Lawyers

Through our membership of the Association of European Lawyers, we have connections with a number of international law firms. Our experienced Contentious probate team can also advise on cross border disputes.


We provide a national service to private clients via our offices in London, Watford, Bristol and Birmingham. For clients based in North Bristol, we also have a dedicated office at 106 Henleaze Road.

To discuss the administration of an international estate, and how our lawyers can help, please contact Michelle Rose on 0117 314 5246.

 

Solicitors must be used to dealing with the ups and downs, chops of changes that can occur during a lifetime. It would be easy to become hardened to these things when dealing with client.... I remain all the more thankful to have been advised by a caring executor and a caring firm who have made it their business simply to meet the deceased's wishes.
