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.

What our clients are saying:

‘EB’, Italy

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 recently had a free initial consultation with Henry Brookman via video conference. He was considered and meticulous in his approach and gave me well thought through advice. He followed this up with a letter in writing summarising the advice he gave me. I would thoroughly recommend his services to anyone looking for legal representation in a divorce.

I met with Henry Brookman for an initial consultation in order to consider if a prenup agreement was the best course of action for my marriage. He spent the time to answer all my questions and encouraged me to do the right thing. I recommend dealing wit Henry Brookman and it was a pleasant experience.
