The timely and proactive resolution of succession not only prevents disputes between the heirs, but it also ensures the best possible preservation of the value of the assets to be passed on.
Our expertise covers all aspects of inheritance law and asset and estate succession during a client’s lifetime. We draw up testamentary dispositions such as wills, contracts of inheritance or donation contracts causa mortis and advise clients both on traditional corporate succession and on succession arrangements of private foundations.
We always aim to understand the circumstances of each family, while acting with the necessary tact and sensitivity, qualities which are indispensable for the careful handling of engagements involving inheritance law.
In addition, we represent clients’ interests in complex probate proceedings (including cross-border cases), advise on the submission of declarations of acceptance of inheritance and draft agreements on the division of inheritance and compulsory portions. In contentious proceedings, we advise clients on contesting testamentary dispositions, on determining the right of succession, and on inheritance, division of inheritance, compulsory minimum share (clawback) or legacy claims.
