International Cases

Our international department has over 40 years of combined experience in probate genealogy and expertise in international estates, especially those from North America, is unrivalled in the UK.

Our international team is headed by Simon Mills and Senior Case Managers, Emily Talbot and Jo Ibrahim. Throughout their respective careers, our international team have worked alongside research partners, court representatives, and attorneys across the globe to represent the interests of our clients and to successfully recover their inheritance.

Our expertise in this field includes conducting genealogical research across the globe, the gathering and preparation of vital records, producing thorough research reports and affidavits as well as expert witness testimony, where necessary.

When undertaking research into intestate matters for which the situs is overseas, it is important to have a clear understanding of the specific laws and practices of the jurisdiction where the estate originates. International estates are often very different from UK intestate matters; from the time scales involved to the distributive shares.

Our team have first-hand knowledge and experience of the intricacies involved with estates from all over the world – an invaluable asset making them best placed to ensure all the rightful heirs are identified.
