The complex nature of modern wealth management means that conflicts and disputes over wills, trusts and lifetime gifts very often involve multijurisdictional issues. We explore a variety of solutions to resolve disputes – including negotiation, mediation and litigation - while keeping costs and tax exposure as low as possible. Combining expertise from our market-leading Private Wealth, Tax, Contentious Probate and Non-Contentious Probate solicitors and a network of legal experts around the world, we can assess those issues and work with you to find a solution. We have experience of disputes in jurisdictions and territories including the BVI, Channel Islands, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, the Middle East, India, the US, Australia and New Zealand. Our specialist understanding in private international laws and the team’s language skills allow us to interact with a wide range of jurisdictions. We act for claimants and defendants from a range of backgrounds. Our key instructions may be from individuals or corporate entities acting in their personal or fiduciary capacities. Our clients often include personal representatives, trustees, disappointed beneficiaries, private trust corporations, international private client attorneys and UK and international charities. International disputes often involve conflicts of laws between the UK and foreign jurisdictions. Overseas jurisdictions are involved if the parties are resident and domiciled there or if the disputed assets are situated there. Conflicts of laws tend to arise in relation to succession, administration and taxation of an estate or trust and lifetime giving. Court will always be seen as the last resort; however, we have extensive experience of handling international Court cases which require attendance in the UK and international Courts.
