Clients are increasingly looking for holistic advice that can comprehensively address the succession issues that are closely intertwined with estate and tax planning.
Our practice focuses on all aspects of estate, succession and tax planning as well as drafting wills, probate applications, trusts (lifetime as well as testamentary) and gifts. Our private client team has extensive experience in dealing with complicated issues of residency, domicile, cross-border bequeathals and other multi-jurisdictional issues that arise as a result of migration of individuals and families to and from India. We closely work with international law firms, accountants and other advisers while advising Indian origin clients who are resident outside India. We also advise our clients on matters relating to property law and structuring of off-shore investments.
Our clients include high net-worth individuals, non-resident Indian families, multi-national corporations, Indian resident families that have members residing across the globe, banks, law firms in other countries and various institutions that represent such persons. With an in-depth knowledge of the complex and community specific personal laws in India relating to succession and matrimony; property laws, exchange control laws and regulations, taxation laws, laws relating to domicile and residency in India and conflict of laws principles; and attention to detail, we ensure that our clients receive optimum solutions to any issue, whether contentious or non-contentious, in relation to matters relating to family and inheritance.
