Lawyers for Family Foundations

A foundation offers business-owning families a range of advantages. As part of private estate planning or company succession, family foundations serve to avoid fragmentation of company assets and enable financial provision to be made for family members, e.g. in the form of regular distributions.

Our lawyers for family foundations advise business owners, family firms and family offices on selecting and designing a suitable form of foundation, establishing the foundation and in all ongoing legal and tax matters associated with family foundations and non-profit foundations. 

Based on an in-depth analysis of the asset situation and the structure of the family business(es) involved, the CMS lawyers specialising in family foundations will recommend establishing a non-profit foundation, a family foundation or a trust, as appropriate. Where an international solution is appropriate or necessary, we involve experts from the CMS Private Clients Specialty Group within the CMS organisation.

Looking for advisors with relevant experience and specific expertise in foundations? The contact details of our lawyers for family foundations are listed below.
