Our international estate planning solicitors can help you efficiently manage international assets while navigating major life events and family changes.

Thorough estate planning enables you and your family to get the most out of your assets as you experience changing circumstances such as marriages, divorces, births and deaths.

Whether you are based in the UK and own overseas assets or you’re based abroad and own UK assets, we can advise you on the most effective ways to structure your global wealth. This includes:

  • Minimising tax, including inheritance tax, capital gains tax and income tax
  • Moving wealth between countries
  • Moving to another country
  • Changing your tax domicile (your permanent home for tax purposes)
  • Keeping assets under family control
  • Making gifts of capital and capital assets
  • Providing income for family members around the world
  • Protecting assets for the future
  • Succession planning
  • Passing wealth on to family members, now and when you die.

Our team is made up of dedicated estate planning solicitors and tax experts who work with clients around the world. We also work closely with financial planning specialists to give you meticulous advice on every aspect of your estate.

We understand that estate planning involves deeply personal and sometimes religious or cultural issues. We have experience in dealing with estates created according to Sharia (Islamic) Law and forced heirship. We understand these issues are complex and sensitive and we'll give you practical advice on how to deal with these issues to ensure your family is properly looked after.

As part of one of the UK’s largest teams of Tax, Trusts & Estates solicitors, we have a wide range of expertise at our disposal. However large or complex your estate is and wherever your assets are, we can advise on the best way to plan for the future.

Sheffield conveyancers are simply the best!

Fast friendly and efficient service from Sheffield team all dealt with electronically due to distance with buying on south coast... The price quoted was fair, fixed and compared favourably against other large firms. Would definitely use again and recommend to anyone.
