Matters of succession are sensitive and important, especially for family-owned businesses. We provide support in the development of a tailor-made succession concept and its implementation through lifetime transfers or an optimized inheritance regulation.


Answers that come to mind are entrepreneurs’ wills, inheritance contracts, waiver of inheritance and compulsory portions, changes of marital status and anticipated succession, as well as solutions such as the so-called double foundation model and accompanying measures such as supervisory board or advisory board structures. We take psychological aspects into account, such as the acceptance of succession arrangements in the family as well as among managers, in order to avoid later disputes and to enable the continued existence of the company – possibly in a modified form.
