Business Succession

We advise both family business and private individuals in matters of company succession and inheritance law and thereby contribute to taking important decisions at an early stage. Early planning and arrangements for succession are often essential, specifically in this highly complex area.

Our counselling includes tax optimization for transfer of companies and assets and also timely arrangement of company law stipulations regarding a generation change and testamentary dispositions.

In this context we draw up stipulations for granting power of attorney in the event that an individual becomes incapacitated or unable to make his/her own decisions. In some cases our lawyers are also appointed by clients as executors for their wills.
