Your rights in case of inheritance
We enforce your inheritance claims and defend you if you are claimed as the heir. We represent your rights and assert your claims for a compulsory portion. We examine the testator's testamentary arrangements for you and the possibilities of contesting the will.
Design of wills
We will advise you on the planning of your estate and discuss with you which surviving dependants you wish to protect, consider or exclude from the succession. We draft wills, spouse's wills, inheritance contracts with you, deposit them for you and take care of the registration in the register of wills.
We advise and represent you as heir in all situations. We take care of the opening of a will, apply for a certificate of inheritance with you, accompany you to the authorities and represent your interests in a community of heirs. Together with you, we plan the entire settlement of the estate and the dissolution of the community of heirs up to the distribution of the estate's assets, such as real estate, accounts, valuables and also personal mementos.
We will discuss with you in detail how you can protect your assets, taking into account the special features of inheritance tax, the risk of social welfare recourse due to nursing home costs and the possibilities of transferring assets during your lifetime. Together with you, we draft individual powers of attorney and living wills in order to avoid having to order legal care.
