INHERITANCE LAW

We provide comprehensive advice on inheritance law, i.e. both on the estate regulation for testators, as well as on estate administration for heirs or on questions from other parties such as passed over persons who are entitled to a compulsory portion.

Often, the tax side must also be considered, especially in case of high fortunes and non-marital partners, since the inheritance tax allowances are then quickly exceeded.

Our legal advice on inheritance law includes in particular:

 

  • Creation of wills

  • Acting as executor

  • Accompanying heirs in the settlement and division of the inheritance, representation in disputes among heirs

  • Advice on legacy, bequest and devise

  • Advice on provisional and revisionary succession (remainderman)

  • Advice on testamentary contracts

  • Assertion of compulsory parts or compulsory part supplements

  • Advice on the options for restricting or passing over those entitled to a compulsory portion, as well as on waivers or unworthiness of heirs

  • Advice on and implementation of tax-optimized arrangements during your lifetime, such as asset transfers through donations, through purchases or through the establishment of companies or foundations

  • Company succession

  • Advice on contractual clauses with a view to possible death

  • Recommendations on renouncing the acceptance of an inheritance, estate insolvency, estate administration and on dealing with liabilities of the estate

  • Advice on inheritance tax, if necessary in cooperation with tax advisors

  • Accompanying and representing heirs in dealing with executors and estate administrators

  • Advice on international inheritance law, support for cases in international legal transactions

  • Advice on advance healthcare directives, care orders, healthcare proxies, powers of attorney and drafting them
