Anne-Katell PetonFrench Lawyer
I am a Solicitor, Notary Public and Accredited Mediator from Bristol and studied at Cardiff University (1988 – 1992). I speak fluent Spanish & French and a large part of my work involves the interaction between English law and the law of another country. For example, this might mean explaining to a court in Spain why an English divorce sentence was drafted in a particular way, or clarifying the terms of an English Will to a lawyer in France.
I am registered with the Solicitors Regulation Authority and also with the Colegio de Abogados in Alicante, Spain.
The type of work I am typically involved with is reviewing Wills for a couple, advising upon claims that might be made against a person’s estate, notarising a Power of Attorney for use in Portugal, drafting Lasting Powers of Attorney (both for the UK & overseas), advising Executors regarding the administration of an estate, Deeds of Variation and Notarising UK company documents for use abroad.
I am a Spanish lawyer with extensive experience in cross-border legal matters, particularly Anglo-Spanish law, having advised on jurisdiction and competence in international affairs including corporate law, investment and partnership agreements, employment, property , wills & probate and family matters.
I am registered as an Abogado at Ilustre Colegio de Abogados de Madrid and as a European Lawyer at Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA).
I am a Probate Manager and have over 30 years of experience in the administration of Estates. Growing up my family owned their own Funeral Directors and this has enabled me to deal with my clients in a sensitive way.
The type of work I am typically involved with includes Cross-Border Estates, Taxable and Non Taxable Estates and Applying for the Grant of Probate.
