Our Director, Nadia Moynihan, recently delivered a training session for lawyers from the American Bar Association International Law Section on the impact of syariah law on estate planning for muslim expatriates with assets all over the world. The issues faced by muslims in planning for the future are more complex than for non-muslims and these issues are compounded when a cross-border element is introduced. If you anticipate the possibility of encountering these issues in planning for the disposition of assets after death, you should seek out legal advice from lawyers familiar with these issues in each country in which assets are located.
