The UK and London in particular, continue to attract a wide range of international individuals and families for many reasons including a relatively stable legal system, sophisticated financial markets, the possibility of investing in London real estate, the availability of the Investor Visa route, and a world renowned educational system.
We advise on a whole range of issues facing wealthy international individuals who are planning to relocate to or invest in the UK, whether their goal is to relocate or to preserve their wealth now and for future generations.
In this respect, we advise on all aspects of wealth structuring, including:
- immigration issues

- advising on non-domicile status and arising/remittance basis of taxation
- using UK and offshore trusts and foundations, as well as other structures to assist with wealth planning
- advising on conflicting tax and legal regimes affecting international families and their wealth structures across multiple jurisdictions.
- Advising an international businessman on the newly introduced EU Succession Directive
- Advising on the administration of a complex international estate, including coordination of advice in multiple jurisdictions both in testate and intestate cases
- Advising a Swiss-based entrepreneur on the remittance basis prior to arrival in London
- Advising international businessmen on tax structure of UK properties in light of Annual Tax on Enveloped Dwellings and Inheritance Tax exposure
- Advising international clients on application of the statutory residence test and its interaction with Inheritance Tax non-domicile status
