The movement of people in the modern era means that private client solicitors are often faced with administering estates with international aspects.

From the initial will instruction, the matter of domicile should be considered as this affects the validity of a will.

From there on international aspects might involve liability to inheritance tax, a will under a foreign law, executors, or beneficiaries abroad and foreign estate.
