Inheritance Law / Estate Planning

Whether you are an entrepreneur or a wealthy private individual – we advise you not only on passing on your own assets to the next generation, but also on the distribution of inherited assets among the beneficiaries.

Taking into account your specific personal and commercial circumstances, we draw up wills and inheritance contracts for you. In the process, we keep a close eye on not only the rights of any beneficiaries to a statutory part but also the fiscal consequences of the transfers of assets.

Should you yourself be entitled to rights from an inheritance, we will support you in the enforcement of your claims as an heir, legatee, or beneficiary of a charge or statutory part. We would also be pleased to advise you on your rights and obligations as an executor of a will, in particular within the framework of disputes among joint heirs.

Together with our foreign colleagues, we also provide you with comprehensive advice on international inheritance and estate planning.
