Property Succession

It is sensible to deal with death and its consequences even with regard to one’s own demise during one’s lifetime. After all, it is reassuring to know that your affairs are securely settled - just in case. Moreover, it is also important because your affairs can be arranged in line with your own wishes and requirements through clearly worded instructions. Based on our long-standing experience, we competently advise you with regard to the preparation of wills, testaments, and contracts of inheritance. Moreover, we can show you possibilities of transferring your assets to the next generation using different structuring tools, such as e.g. family-owned companies, tailored to your specific needs.

In our work, we focus, in particular, on company and property succession, which brings together many legal aspects, e.g., of tax, company and inheritance law and, hence, creates complex challenges for advisers. In this context, in addition to income tax, potential land transfer tax, sales tax and inheritance and gift tax consequences have to be taken into account and, if possible, optimised. We help you in finding the right strategy for a tailor-made and fully legal, tax-optimised solution, taking your individual circumstances fully into consideration.
