He is widely experienced in both local and international will and probate matters and has particular expertise in the administration of high net worth and multi-jurisdictional estates as well as complex succession planning and will drafting.

Background and experience

Henry deals with a broad variety of clients and has been advising for many years on estate planning, will drafting and estate administration. He provides advice and assistance on the creation and ongoing operation of private and commercial trusts including the drafting of trust instruments, supplemental documentation and the establishment and use of family offices and private trust companies. For Jersey based clients, Henry also provides advice on post death issues such as forced heirship, the registration of immovable wills, probate applications, tutelles, the role and rights of executors, heirs and beneficiaries, lasting powers of attorney and he also acts as a Court appointed Delegate for a number of incapacitated clients.

When dealing with clients who are internationally based, Henry advises on complex private international law issues such as the construction and validity of wills, domicile issues and the situs and ownership of assets from a pre and post death point of view. The Ogier Estate Planning, Wills and Probate team, led by Henry, is highly experienced in registering foreign powers of attorney and providing will and probate services for clients who have assets in the Island or for families who are dealing with an estate where there is a Jersey asset that requires administering.
