Distributing someone's assets after their passing is a difficult task at a challenging time. Doing so without proper advice and understanding of the laws is an even greater challenge. The difference between British and French laws can further complicate the process when managing French assets. We can help you settle an estate. We can address questions regarding cross border jurisdiction, assist with the preparation of legal and tax documents, and liaison with French authorities.
Do you know how your estate will be distributed to your beneficiaries? If you are a British citizen with French property or have relocated to France, there are complications to consider. Everything from the language barrier to differences in British and French law can add complexity to settling your estate.
We can help you manage these complications and determine the best way to establish your beneficiaries. There are several ways to establish your heirs. Depending on the importance of your estate, you may consider the preparation of French Wills (testaments), a gift to your children or members of your family (donation entre vifs) or the distribution of your assets with your relatives (donation-partage). We have a thorough understanding and knowledge of French wills and can provide professional assistance in each step of your estate planning.

So, avoid legal missteps and potentially costly mistakes with expert guidance and advice from trusted French business law professionals.
Whether you have relocated abroad, work abroad, or frequently travel, there is a strong likelihood you will need to assign someone power of attorney.

Family law encompasses the different steps of your life from marriage to divorce, children and adults incapacity and anticipating your own protection and those of your assets.
