Business ans Asset Succession
Choosing the correct way to inherit or bequest assets prevents conflict, disappointment and expenses. We advise and represent you in all inheritance matters. Our practice encompasses estate planning, in particular the drafting of testamentary dispositions such as wills and contracts of inheritance. We also support you in the enforcement of your inheritance claims. Upon request, we act as executor and support you in making the right dispositions.
Business succession, in particular, requires careful and individual planning. Besides questions regarding corporate and inheritance law, aspects of family and tax law often play an important part: Articles of association, testamentary dispositions and prenuptial agreements need to be well attuned to each other. Also, in times of growing international mobility, questions with regard to conflicts of laws or foreign law arise with increasing frequency.
We assist to identify your goals and any measures required to implement them, including possible risks and pitfalls. Our practice in the area of business and asset succession encompasses the structuring of internal and external succession solutions, the drafting of articles of association and shareholders’ agreements, testamentary dispositions, powers of attorney, prenuptial agreements and family constitutions as well as the conception of foundations and on-going advice in succession matters.
We work with either your personal tax advisor or a partner from our own network. We may also involve wealth and strategy advisors if required. Moreover, our membership in the international TerraLex network allows us to consult foreign attorneys where required and requested and thereby resolve any relevant issues under foreign law quickly and competently.
