Inheritance law

Taking timely and appropriate action is essential when dealing with inheritance law. Only by acting in a timely manner , e.g. by drawing up a last will and testament, an inheritance contract, a healthcare proxy, or a lifetime gift, can the accumulated estate be protected – also from an excessive tax burden – and a distribution of the assets in accordance with the decedent’s intentions be ensured. Our attorneys and tax consultants provide advice both before inheritance comes to pass, i.e. with succession arrangements, and after the inheritance has come into effect, i.e. in case of inheritance disputes and the settlement of estates with co-heirs, legatees and executors. Since inheritance law is one of our partnership’s core competencies, we represent you both in and out of court, relying on our decades of in-depth experience in the field of inheritance law.
