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 Angharad Lynn on +44 (0) 20 7665 0904.

 

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.
