What will Brexit bring for international private clients?
The UK Law Societies’ Joint Brussels Office and STEP Benelux will be holding a joint seminar hosted by the offices of Loyens & Loeff.
Whatever Brexit is going to look like, it will bring a series of complex challenges for international private clients, affecting their decisions on how to deal with matters of estate and asset disposal planning, tax, family and succession.
This seminar aims to help to clarify some of the most pressing issues through a conversation with practitioners from different jurisdictions.
