International and Cross-Border

Raquel is a private client solicitor specialising in international and cross-border wills and succession. She advises clients who have assets in the UK and abroad on estate planning, inheritance tax, domicile issues, will preparation and powers of attorney, as well as administration of multi-jurisdictional estates.

Raquel qualified as an English solicitor in 2012, having completed her legal studies at the University of the West of England. After practicing in wills, trusts and probate for 5 years, she joined the specialist International and Cross-Border Team at Stone King in 2017.

Raquel is a native Catalan and Spanish speaker, having grown up in Barcelona before moving to the UK in 1994. She is therefore familiar with the cultural and legal challenges facing those with international connections and can explain complex, unfamiliar legal concepts in plain English.

Raquel holds STEP’s (Society of Trustee and Estate Practitioners) specialist Advanced Certificate in Cross-Border Estates (distinction), and is in the process of becoming a full STEP member.

Raquel is a member of STEP’s special interest group for Cross-Border Estates and International Client.
