Tax, Wills and Estate Planning

One of North Star Law’s key focus is looking after non-domiciliaries in the UK. Whether the client is a high net-worth individual, entrepreneur or just a young person venturing abroad in the hope of realising their dreams we can help. We help clients move to the UK, while they are in the UK and help them with their departure from the UK. North Star Law’s interest in each client means we are on call to “hold the client’s hand”.

It is paramount that the private client understands and optimises the potential tax benefits available and structures their assets onshore and offshore in the best possible way. North Star Law’s private client focus is tailored to consider:

  • tax issues in England & Wales
  • trusts, foundations and life insurance policies
  • estate planning
  • probate issues
  • protection of assets in relation to marriage
