Advising private clients and their families in personal matters is a long-standing tradition of our attorneys. We assist our clients in the area of estate planning relating both to their personal and commercial assets. Our expertise extends to all matters of inheritance law, general estate planning and international estate planning, as well as fiduciary operations, trust and estate administration and executor-ships. We provide advice regarding the financial interests of private clients and their families, assistance in connection with the purchase and sale of real property. As many estate planning arrangements are established as cross-border structures, multi-jurisdictional issues are relevant, in particular matrimonial property laws, inheritance laws and bankruptcy laws of the relevant jurisdictions of the parties concerned combined with conflict of laws rules and an ever increasing number of international treaties. We advise our clients on the use and setting up of legal structures for estate planning purposes (including trusts or other structures in foreign jurisdictions) and the respective inheritance or estate tax implications We also advise on testamentary wills and their execution, inheritance and marriage agreements and marriage dissolution as well as on the establishment of charitable or private foundations.
