Family & Assets


For many years we have rendered advice to private individuals and entrepreneurs on a multitude of legal and tax issues which arise in connection with their private and/or entrepreneurial assets. We combine our core competence in corporate law, tax law, inheritance law and foundation law as well as real-estate law and art law in our practice group “Family & Assets” for this purpose. Due to our international experience, we are able to assist our clients competently with regard to cross-border aspects of their property matters as well, and where necessary also to access an international network of specialised attorneys.

Moreover, we work closely together with specialised family-law attorneys, financial advisors and notaries public, in order to be able to offer our clients comprehensive assistance and advice.
