Family Businesses/Succession and Large Estates/Foundations

We assist family businesses and entrepreneurial families in succession planning, considerations on the legal form, restructuring of company groups, company sales and acquisitions as well as shareholder disputes and how to avoid them. An experienced partner is there to support you as your personal contact and will advise you, taking into account issues regarding corporate and tax, inheritance and family law. Colleagues who are specialized in other areas of law may be consulted as needed. We craft solutions for the execution of wills and for foundations and act as executors as well as on supervisory and advisory boards. 

Our comprehensive consulting approach involves our clients’ assets in their entirety. In addition to our consulting services for business-related questions, we structure private assets and develop solutions for foundations and family offices. We design individual asset protection solutions for entrepreneurial families and high-net-worth individuals. We focus not only on protecting private assets from risks arising in the corporate sphere, but on safeguarding large private assets from unwanted access by third parties, as well.  

On an ongoing basis, we advise family businesses on corporate and tax law, questions concerning capital markets and on financing issues. Our legal advice takes organizational, economic and psychological implications into account. We work closely and in trusting cooperation with our clients’ tax advisors and accountants.
