We were instructed by the beneficiaries of an industrialist to trace corporate assets in 17 jurisdictions.
We obtained details of the many companies he operated and then proceeded to identify the various asset types including property assets, dormant bank accounts, unclaimed or lost money due from dividends and Director/Consultancy fees and investment portfolios run by asset management companies who were not aware that he had died.
In addition we examined historic IRS and UK tax returns which led us to additional unclaimed Federal State and UK assets. These included reference to dormant bank accounts and other asset registers.
Having identified all the additional assets we then dealt with the local requirements to recover them and transfer ownership to the family.
