With cross-border successions becoming increasingly common in the context of the
European Union, this timely book offers a systematic practical analysis of how
cross-border successions should be treated, including examination of which courts
may establish jurisdiction over succession disputes and which law governs such
disputes. Studying cross-border successions in the context of estate planning and in
the opening and liquidation of a succession, it examines the specificities of the
European Certificate of Succession, contextualising it within its interface with the
national laws and practice of EU Member States.
