We have advised this client in an inheritance dispute claim on the estate of his late father. The matter includes cross border aspects with assets in the UK, Morocco and Spain and the majority of the worldwide estate was left to the deceased’s former maid/housekeeper. This was complicated as the death occurred abroad. The deceased also had a complex family structure following four marriages, three ending in divorce, and as a result of this he had multiple step families. There were also possible questions of incomplete financial disclosure by the deceased within the divorce proceedings concluded during his lifetime.
Matter value: £2m worldwide estate
