About Stone King
Buying or selling abroad? You need expert legal advice.
Don’t be daunted when thinking about tax and legal advice for overseas property – at Stone King we know how important it is to get it right.
Stone King LLP is a fully regulated firm of English solicitors ‘of the senior courts of England & Wales’ which has been trusted by clients for over 230 years.
We have a specialist team of international and cross-border lawyers who can help you, regardless of where you are resident in the world and regardless of where your assets are based. We may not even have to meet you face-to-face – although we are always delighted to do so.
“Buying and selling abroad means you’ll need expert advice for that all-important peace of mind and although local professionals can usually advise you on local tax law, often they can’t tell you how that translates in a cross-border context,” said Daniel Harris, Head of Stone King’s International and Cross-Border Team.
“Too often we see people who have worked with an overseas lawyer only to find the legal advice has ramifications on their UK assets."
“That’s why we partner with professionals abroad, all of whom are well-qualified in the jurisdiction in which they operate. This means we are able to help you not only with UK law, but with laws in other parts of the world. Our holistic approach means your legal advice will be fully compatible with other jurisdictions."
“By choosing Stone King we can often save you money in the long run.”
As a firm of English solicitors we have been trusted by clients for over 230 years and our clients come to us safe in the knowledge that we are regulated in the UK.
