Mr. Jakub Kotan – Partner


Jakub studied law at University of Sussex and went on to complete an LLM master’s degree and the legal practice course at BPP University.

He specialises in advising clients on estate planning, will preparation, inheritance tax, trust related matters and Lasting Powers of Attorney. Jakub also deals with estate administration and related tax matters.

In addition, he often handles cross-border estates and contentious probate matters.

“I found Jakub to be very compassionate and knowledgeable in dealing with the affairs of probate and the estate of my late wife. His work in the U.K. was further complicated due to international matters which were handled in a timely and efficient manner.”
