Law of Succession and Planning
We also render notarial advice and support in the area of succession and succession planning.
In setting up a customized, family-specific succession plan, transfers by way of anticipated inheritance are a way of planning ahead - also from a tax law perspective. We draw up transfer agreements which benefit the future heirs while simultaneously making allowance for the security interests of the transferors, and we safeguard such interests by stipulating usufructs, caring obligations, claims for restitution or annuities.
The drafting of last wills and testaments and of contracts of inheritance, also with a view to different nationalities and assets located abroad, prevents disputes after the death of the testator and ensures peace within the family. Careful succession planning safeguards the asset base and the future of small and large enterprises. We give competent advice and assist in succession planning by drawing on our experience and expertise. This also includes finding solutions for foundations, for instance setting up a lifetime foundation or a testamentary foundation or making additional contributions or endowment payments to existing non-profit organizations.
