We deal exclusively with French legal issues for English speaking clients such as the sale and purchase of properties in France, Estate planning and Wills to cover both English and French assets, French tax queries and gifting French assets to name a few.

We provide so much more than a translation...
Although many French notaries will try to explain documents, the language is often a problem. In addition, the French notary will not necessarily be able to draw comparisons with the UK legal system. What is normal and obvious to a French client may be totally alien to you.
As a specialist firm, when you contact our office you are guaranteed to deal directly with an English-speaking French law specialist.
Our team of solicitors and paralegals has extensive knowledge and experience of French law, including French sales and purchases, transfer of French property arising on divorce or separation, probate formalities in France, French inheritance law, French wills and much more.
