Solicitors in England are bound by professional rules of conduct, including client identification and money laundering regulations.
In some circumstances it is possible to proceed without meeting a client, but we would usually need someone in the UK to have a Power of Attorney and be able to identify the ultimate client. This can be achieved by having a lawyer in your country of residence carry out the appropriate identity checks.
You can meet with us on Skype, over Zoom, in person, or speak to us on the telephone at a time that works for you.
Every situation is different so you can choose the level of assistance you need, from a one-off consultation to review your arrangements or full representation in more complicated matters. Therefore costs will vary.
Please be assured that we have a transparent approach to fees and will provide you with cost estimates at each stage. For international matters we require a payment on account to be made and clients are then invoiced on a monthly basis, with a full breakdown of the work carried out.
Our flexible working practice means we are able to offer competitive fees despite our central London location.
We assist clients who are based overseas on a range of private wealth scenarios, including tax and estate planning for those who have assets in the UK, or when having moved abroad, the person is named as an executor in a Will.
In all situations we work with you and your local representatives to proceed in the way which is simplest and most cost effective, whilst also ensuring that we protect against the possibility of a fraudulent situation.
