Inheritance law

During the next few years a number of companies will have to handle a change of generations. The wrong strategic decision at the outset can lead to considerable financial losses and even to a crisis threatening the very existence of the company. Advice in inheritance matters demands heightened sensitivity and an instinct for confidentiality.

Our lawyers engaged in this field concentrate mainly on planning asset succession and structuring the succession in family-owned companies, including advice in tax matters. The key areas of our activity in the field of inheritance law are as follows:

  • Framing wills and inheritance contracts
  • Gifts, particularly with regard to their tax implications
  • Advice in the event of an inheritance
  • Execution of a will
  • Liquidation of communities of heirs through partition
  • Pursuit of claims to a compulsory portion of the inheritance and the augmentation of this compulsory portion
  • Probate proceedings
  • Inheritance tax law
