Our expert lawyers have years of experience advising both UK resident non-domiciliaries and non-UK residents on effective international succession and wealth structuring, in relation to UK taxation. For these individuals, the UK tax regime holds plenty of potential pitfalls and without proper legal advice, can bring unexpected tax liabilities.

Similarly, non-residents who own assets in the UK, particularly residential real estate, have seen a significant increase in taxation over the past few years. We provide our clients with strategic advice on international succession and wealth structuring for assets held personally and through tax-efficient structures.

Our lawyers also have a deep understanding of how international financial institutions and trust companies work. We have considerable experience working with those without existing advisors. Drawing on our worldwide network of contacts, we are able to provide specialist advice on international succession and wealth structuring of international trusts.

Areas of focus

Our expertise in international succession and wealth structuring includes:

  • Treatment of assets held personally and in structures such as companies.
