Estate planning

Family succession of companies, transfer of property, adaptation/implementation of structures, gifts, …

Estate planning covers much more than a mere fiscal driven transfer of patrimony. Estate planning starts from a well thought organized patrimony and concerns both the privately held wealth as the company fortune. A company fortune offers only chances to continuity if clear and enforceable agreements on issues of corporate governance and shareholding are made in advance of a transfer. Moreover, the succeeding transfer always deserves a legal and fiscal framework fit to the individual needs of both the transferor and the company itself. Hence tailor-made, with attention to tax (income tax, registration duties and inheritance taxes), company law and civil law.
