Fiscal law

Most economically and legally relevant issues cannot be addressed without the involvement of the client’s tax consultant.

We take the fiscal consequences into consideration within the scope of an integrated advisory approach.

We have the relevant expertise in the domain of the notarial office and in the domain of legal advice which takes account of the links between corporate and fiscal law or real estate transactions and fiscal law.

Our main focus with regard to taxation is particularly:

  • Commercial and corporate law
  • Property transactions
  • Real estate transfer tax
  • Corporate law-related structuring in connection with the purchase of real property
  • The issue of value added tax in connection with construction services
  • Reverse charge mechanism in connection with construction services
Inheritance law

In Germany, more assets will be handed on in the years to come than ever before. Still many are in default of an individually designed asset succession concept.

We advise our clients in the preparation of their wills and work out complex company succession structures with them. The drafting of corporate law contracts goes hand in hand with the drafting of testamentary dispositions and the associated marriage contract arrangements.

We are, in particular, specialising in the design of testamentary dispositions in the international realm and cooperate closely with foreign colleagues from our networks here.

Our fields of activity in inheritance law are, among others:

  • Marriage contracts
  • Testamentary dispositions (testamentary contracts and wills)
  • Design of anticipated successions
  • Company succession
  • Organisation of foundations
  • Distributions of estates
