WE ARE VETA LAW
Our Family Office
We can help with the myriad of legal issues faced by modern wealthy families. In this context, your interests are likely to include: commercial and private property sales and purchases, trust and wealth management, estate and company management, family law advice and charitable (philanthropic) giving.
For many families, one of the biggest challenges is ensuring that the next generation is both ready for and aware of the wealth that they will inherit. We have considerable experience in helping you to prepare and to advise your children and grandchildren about the many issues that wealth brings.
Inheritance Tax Planning
Many of our clients wish to discuss inheritance tax planning, and we will advise you on the legal options available to mitigate this liability, both in your lifetime and on your death.
Our team offers a broad range of expertise, including succession planning, tax mitigation, trust structuring, and wills and power of attorney planning.
Some of our clients, or members of their families, face domicile or multi-jurisdictional issues caused by living, working or owning property in different countries.
Specifically, we advise on:
• Inheritance tax planning
• Family investment companies
• Domicile and multi-jurisdictional issues
Probate & Estate Administration
We are highly experienced in dealing with all aspects of probate and estate administration. We have advised on many complex estates, including dealing with those which have cross-border and multi-jurisdictional issues.
We are also able to advise on other complex estates, including those with issues such as business and agricultural property relief, significant lifetime gifts and other inheritance tax matters which require negotiation with HMRC. We have also been involved in applications where original wills have been lost, requiring applications for emergency grants, and we have been praised for how we deal with matters where there are charities involved.
Disputed Wills & Estates
We have also been involved in many disputed estates. Although we do not advise on matters which require litigation, we have successfully helped families to avoid costly litigation by advising on pragmatic solutions. When necessary, we work closely with litigation lawyers in helping to structure settlements, and we have also been appointed by the court as replacement executors when the appointed executors need to step down. Specifically, we advise on:
• Disputed estates
• Complex UK-based estates
• Cross-border estate administration
• Grant applications and administration
