- Law Firm
Our experienced attorneys and notaries perform public notarisations of contracts of inheritance and wills, advice families, spouses, unregistered cohabiting partners and registered partners in matters of inheritance law, assist entrepreneurs with estate planning and act as executors for decedents' estates.
We advice you on questions relating to prenuptial or postnuptial agreements (most-favoured treatment of the surviving spouse, protections in the event of death or divorce, establishing the marital property regime of separate property, questions concerning the family business), cohabiting partners agreements and registered partnership agreements, and our notaries prepare the necessary public deeds for clients in these areas.
Our attorneys and notaries support you as a private individual or entrepreneur with regard to issues relating to guardianship (rules on agency powers, care and asset management in the event of incapacity of judgement, excluding the child and adult protection authorities (KESB)), general powers of attorney or advance care directives.
We advice and support entrepreneurial families, family businesses and high net asset families in the realm of the family office. Together with external experts from our network, we deal with all interdisciplinary areas such as corporate and tax consulting, accounting and social insurance. We are pleased to draft a family charter for you, advice you on the development of family strategy in respect of title to assets, and draft and notarise the necessary documents (shareholder agreements or partnership agreements, organisational rules, specially tailored guardianship arrangements). We are also there for you when creating emergency management systems in the event that crucial staff members suddenly become incapacitated.
We support you in all matters relating to family and inheritance law and represent you both in out-of-court negotiations and before conciliation authorities, administrative authorities of Swiss municipalities and cantons, the ordinary courts, special authorities and commercial courts or arbitral tribunals in Lucerne and throughout Switzerland.
