Our law  firm operates in France and abroad on the following matters:

  • Inheritance law: counsel & assistance through the estate settlement process, probates, administration of joint tenancies, inheritance dispute resolution or litigation, etc.)

A DUAL EXPERTISE:

LAWYER / NOTARY

Thanks to a notarial training course, our dual expertise Lawyer-Notary gives us an overall view of your requirements  and allows us to efficiently organise all needed asistance – regarding  judicial, legal and tax aspects – cost-effectively.

This dual expertise can be particularly useful with real estate transactions; for example, it can allow an effecient monitoring of the whole buying or selling process and an effective real estate ownership structuring (creation of a property management company - Société Civile Immobilière "SCI").

Depending on the client's needs, our mission can also include Family Office services, such as management of legal and financial affairs, day-to-day accounting and payroll activities, household staff management, travel arragements, etc.

A SPECIFIC SKILL:

LAWYER-TRUSTEE

TOMBOIS AVOCATS is registered to act on behalf of fiduciary beneficiaries as a recognized Lawyer-Trustee, like less than 10 lawyers in France.

This distinctive characteristic adds the French equivalent of trust, known as Fiducie, as a new tool for family governance, for example as a protection against possible creditors.

TOMBOIS AVOCATS can also advise on trust contract's drafting or act as trustee, i.e. hold property on behalf of its clients.
