Family and Inheritance Law

Focus on Offering Provision and Resolving Conflicts

We have a long tradition of legal counseling in family and inheritance law matters. We offer procedural advice and support in the course of estate planning, estate administration and executorship as well as all family law matters (especially separation agreements, divorce proceedings, marriage and inheritance contracts, maintenance and matrimonial property regimes, children’s interests, cohabitation). Our in-house notaries are able to notarize testaments, marriage and inheritance contracts themselves.

Succession planning forms an important interface for companies with a focus on family and inheritance law consequences. Here we support both companies and private individuals with practicable solutions for planning and implementation – for instance when setting up foundations and trusts.
