Introductory message from Sean O'Connor

Hello.  I happen to be very good at this work.  After picking up a degree in history at Oxford University, it later came about that I spent approximately three years at the Court of Justice of the European Communities at Luxembourg as a full-time Legal Translator of the Court Reports from French into English. I have thus picked up a very thorough knowledge of French Legal terminology.

Under French Legal Issues on this website you can read information from me on the French inheritance laws, French inheritance tax, the French planning system, the French social charges and Trusts in relation to France. There is also information on forthcoming changes to French contract law. You can also find (under the Tab More above)  a Note of our views concerning Britain and the European Union, having regard to the 'Leave' decision in the recent Referendum. In it, we incline towards prudence, caution and patience concerning this matter.

Or you can simply phone us up straight away.  Quick.  Telephone :  01732 365 378.  Or email if you prefer :

Kind regards,
