Our law firm provides comprehensive legal advice to entrepreneurs and wealthy individuals in the often related fields of succession, property, and foundations. Succession strategies in family businesses as well as the structuring and passing on of private property to the next generation constitute a major focus of our practice. Here we ensure that the multifaceted interplay between company law, succession, family law, foundations and taxation law is fully taken into account in the structuring of and execution of transactions, thereby achieving the optimal solution for the individual client by weighing all relevant criteria. Our firm has long experience not only in the classical succession planning within the family and family undertakings, but also with succession arrangements through separation of family branches, MBOs, private equity or foundation models. In the tax efficient structuring of succession we act where required together with our independent co-operation partner Deloitte, one of the largest auditing and tax consultancy companies in the world.
With our in-house notary public colleagues in Berlin and Hanover, we offer clients notarial advise and involvement in succession plans and their execution.
