The business magazine “Wirtschaftswoche” of 14.12.2009 has rated us as one of the 25 best law firms for succession law in Germany.
Welcome to our law firm
in the centre of Munich
We are a firm of lawyers specialising in the law of succession and have been experts for over 25 years in inheritance law, laws governing inheritance tax and estate planning.
Our Law Firm
We represent our clients not only in court and with tax authorities but also in the drafting of wills and testaments and inheritance planning. We look after your interests in the whole of Germany especially in district, regional and higher regional courts as well as with tax authorities.
We endeavour to provide a cost effective and prompt out-of-court settlement to legal disputes. Should, however, a satisfactory negotiated settlement not be possible, we will assert your rights in court.
Our professional competence is valued highly by banks, professional associations and insurance companies so that we are frequently requested to hold lectures and seminars for these institutions e.g. the regional federation of tax accountants and auditors, D.A.S. (a legal expense insurance company), the LBS Bavarian Savings Bank and the HypoVereinsbank.
