Inheritance Law Attorney: Support in Estate Administration

Inheritance law governs the administration of property after its owner has deceased. Many people are anxious to reflect on their own death, but early consideration of questions pertaining to succession (e.g. making a last will, advance succession by way of gift) are essential in structuring succession with the aim of achieving one’s own interests as well as being tax-optimised. As attorneys for inheritance law and tax advisers, we advise you in all legal and taxation questions. In addition to offering legal advice, we also offer our services as estate administrators. We advise you comprehensively and competently in all questions of claiming your rights as heir, beneficiary of a compulsory portion or legatee. If required, we will assist you in asserting your legitimate claims at court. If an inheritance matter is disputed, we also offer mutual resolution by way of a professional mediation.
