When a loved one or a family member dies, the will sometimes becomes the start of acrimony.
London is one of the largest business districts in the world. It is the heart of world-wide banking. Assets, businesses, business interests, property and cash are often kept in the UK for tax purposes. Wills may therefore at times become a cross border dispute, subject to the laws that apply where the will is to be probated. Probate laws in the UK, Ireland and US are all different. Probate case law in London has a very long history. Ensuring you have the right legal representative is imperative.
Ireland has some very beneficial tax incentives for businesses to be located in and trade from Ireland. Again, this may give rise to a cross border probate dispute.
Muldoon Britton has offices in New York, London, Manchester and Dublin. Many of our attorneys are dual qualified, and can therefore offer you a first class service without the “big firm” feeling that you and your case have been forgotten.
It is possible to instruct Muldoon Britton’s New York office and only deal with them until trial, whilst in the background our UK based lawyers work away on your case. As the New York office will work on your time zone, this can take away a lot of the stress that naturally is associated with disputes.
