Succession, Private Assets, and Foundations
Entrepreneurs and family-owned undertakings in all branches of business appreciate our competence in serving their needs. Our experience, accumulated over decades, enables us to prepare future-oriented solutions which serve each client well.
We advise entrepreneurs on the managerial, tax and legal aspects of succession. Taking the initiative in time for the transfer of control over the undertaking makes it possible to plan and implement solutions with due regard to the legal and tax opportunities.
The lack of a successor and the desire to engage in philanthropic activities frequently lead to a foundation as an instrument of succession. We provide legal and tax advice to foundations, both in the formation process and to assist in meeting the everyday challenges.
