Our Legal Team

Corporate and employment advice

Suppose your company is considering a joint venture or needs to prepare a commercial contract, perhaps in a complex cross-border situation. In that case, our experienced company and employment law specialists can help. Often, mid-size corporate clients come to our lawyers for guidance on cross-border acquisitions and share sales or purchases.

Additionally, we specialise in employment matters and the English law aspects that apply to international companies, such as those that employ staff in England and Wales.

Some members of our corporate law team are multilingual, including Gitta Altmann, who speaks fluent English and German. She and the other solicitors in her team will be delighted to take instructions on mergers, acquisitions, inward investment and establishing a footprint in the UK. In addition, the group frequently advises clients from Scandinavian states, German-speaking countries and North America.

International family law

Thanks to travel opportunities and increased ease of communication, personal relationships increasingly involve partners from different countries. Our expert family law solicitors can offer helpful guidance when such relationships develop to the point where the partners are considering cohabitation or marriage. We regularly work with individuals and couples who wish to prepare nuptial or cohabitation agreements. Also, the team offers unique expertise in Anglo-Swedish matters.

Conversely, suppose that two relationship partners decide to go their separate ways. In these circumstances, we suggest mediation or arbitration as a preferred way to resolve financial claims and childcare arrangements. The team, headed by Graeme Fraser, has considerable experience with settlements, solvency, child abduction and crossborder family law in today’s post-Brexit environment.

Tax-saving Advice

UK nationals or residents who reside or do business in more than one country or intend to relocate to another often benefit from expert tax recommendations. It is usually best to plan proactively to simplify financial matters, optimise tax liabilities and minimise concerns about working and moving abroad. Specifically, tax rates, charge bands, treatment of dividend income and even the start and end of the financial year can vary between nations.

We offer our clients the benefit of our expertise, including offshore trusts and other financial arrangements to acquire, manage, or dispose of UK assets. Importantly, our lawyers are familiar with optimising legal and financial liabilities for business and residential property, whether in the UK or other jurisdictions.

We also provide guidance and support for non-domiciled individuals who are under review within the UK.

Real estate

We advise and act for individuals and overseas companies looking to acquire property on the residential or commercial market. In particular, clients can rely on Stock Denton lawyers for reliable information regarding the processes to follow and relevant laws.

Similarly, we take instructions from UK organisations and companies who require legal advice about selling real estate in mainland Europe and beyond.
