Inheritance law and succession

Advice. In all matters of inheritance law.

Few other areas in law are as emotionally and psychologically charged as family and succession law. When life throws its punches, you need a prudent advisor with extensive legal expertise. Our lawyers are specialised in family law and the law of succession and have the necessary soft and hard skills to represent your interests even in exceptional circumstances: with empathy, foresight and the necessary professional and life experience.

For some clients, the “optimal outcome” is defined in monetary terms. For others, a quick settlement is the first and foremost priority. We tailor our solutions to the client’s goals and needs and work with them to achieve the optimal outcome. Clients benefit from our years of experience in and out of court. We firmly believe: the ability to make the rights provisions for the future depends on the ability to understand the chances and risks involved in legal proceedings.
