Your goals

Inheritance matters are very individual, often complex and emotional. Both estate planning and succession are extraordinary events and sometimes also dramatic experiences. Personal involvement and various family constellations often also trigger uncertainties about one’s own rights and obligations. You are looking for non-bureaucratic expert support by experienced specialists in your estate planning, in inheritance disputes, distribution of an estate or in dealings with the authorities.

Are you an entrepreneur or a business owner or do you want to take over a family business? Then you need a tailor-made, legally and tax-secured concept for the company’s succession plan. Personal retirement planning for you and your family must also be taken into account.
