Masterclass Insights Cross Border Succession
The devolution of assets of a testator holding property in multiple jurisdictions depends upon the proper law governing the succession to the estate. It can generally be said that common law countries look at domicile, with moveables being governed by the laws of domicile (lex domicilii) and immoveables the law of situs (lex situs), whereas the approach of civil countries is not to take this ‘dual’ approach, but to look at where the testator was habitually resident and apply a single system of law (of succession) to all the deceased’s worldwide estate. The interaction among the different systems is complicated by the possible operation of renvoi.
Masterclass Insights Compliance
The challenges facing private wealth advisers, their clients, directors, trustees and other fiduciaries continue to rise globally. The volume and complexity of legislation grows year by year since the global financial crises in 2007 - 2008 and the increase in terrorist attacks by extremist organisations. Combined with more rigorous supervision and enforcement by regulators, the international crack-down against tax evasion by tax authorities and other money laundering and financial crimes, compliance is now at the epicentre of most business organisations.
Masterclass Insights Family Business Advising
