Law of succession

A strange person in charge, funds that have disappeared, quarreling siblings or inheritance tax given away: Those who want to avoid this for themselves and their relatives are in a position to take measures of precaution. Whether in a case of illness or of inheritance, it is possible to put things on the right track in an easy, timely and competent way by creating legal arrangements (e.g. last will, health care proxy, patient’s provision) for the protection of oneself as well as for the protection of the family. We assist you in a specialist and complete way with the planning of your provision for old age and succession, be it in the private or the entrepreneurial sector, including, of course questions of inheritance tax. Legal questions are the last thing to be addressed after the death of a related party. Therefore, it is even more important to be able to put eventual questions relating to the law of succession into competent hands in order to enforce existing claims or to defend oneself against unjustified claims without having to worry about this. We remain at your disposal after a case of inheritance regarding all questions relating to the deceased's assets/property, real estate, claims, shares, amounts receivable etc.
