International Wealth & Estate Planning

International clients have specialised wealth and estate planning requirements.

Even with excellent financial advisers in place, it is often our overarching view that is key to executing a durable financial arrangement.

England and Wales and the common law jurisdictions (like the US, Canada, Australia etc) are unusual in that a person’s Will is particularly important, and depending on circumstances, potentially complex.

If assets are held in different countries it is vital to consider the limits of a Will’s effectiveness there.

Tax planning is also a vital concern. We draw on the specialised services of excellent barristers in that area when needed.

Family arrangements can also benefit from specialist legal advice. If a couple are estranged but not divorced, there needs to be careful consideration of inheritance. Sometimes a child may live in a country which has excessive taxation of incoming wealth.

We also handle and advise on disputed inheritances. These often arise where, sadly, the deceased did not fully consider and carry out an estate planning exercise.

Our knowledge of international problems means that we can identify issues and co-ordinate advice from other professionals such as accountants, tax counsel and independent financial advisers to craft a robust and practical framework for the family’s future wealth preservation.

FAB lawyers!- I was, and continue to be impressed by Henry Brookman’s approach to family law. He has a humanistic style, and is sensitive in handling family issues; in the knowledge children and family stability is at stake. Fortunately, both Henry Brookman and Tommy Lynch were able to advise me with the best legal information for my problems. Henry and Tommy, as well as the secretarial staff at Brookman’s made me feel as ease when meeting them. I should add, I always had a very stereotypical image of city lawyers before meeting them; they are without question extremely competent lawyers, but without being stuffy. Their humour and kindness helped me survive many difficult moments. I would not for one moment hesitate in recommending their services.

I wanted to say a big thanks to Henry Bookman and his colleagues for all their help and guidance during my divorce - a long a complicated one. The team were all brilliant. I loved the fact that Henry was happy to explore possibilities and search for solutions. I also feel that on occasions he gave hope when things were against me. All told a great coach who was ready with pearls of wisdom when I needed it.

I would strongly recommend this firm. I had the opportunity to discuss my case thoroughly with Mr Bookman. But before the initial consultation, I had a telephone conversation with a legal assistant who took most of the details down, so that my initial consultation was to the point I appreciate the advice given by Mr Bookman and think it a humble approach that the initial consultation is FREE and carried by the most senior member of the firm and not by a junior staff like it happens in other firms.

Aziz Malik. Unbelievably good. Fantastic advice and was able to manage my difficult family law case to a superb outcome. Highly recommended.

I did a consultation with Henry and I highly recommend him. He took the time to understand my situation, checked that he had all the information he needed and once he realized he was not the best person for my case, he recommended another lawyer in another country who could help. Unlike other lawyers I've worked with previously, he was extremely honest, transparent and generous with his time.

The professionalism and speed at which Mr Henry responded to the initial enquiry was remarkable and the advice provided was detailed and clear.
