Lawyers for corporate succession

The CMS Tax Law practice has been advising SMEs in business succession scenarios for decades as a trusted, expert partner. Our lawyers for corporate succession work with you to develop a solution that is aligned with your personal and company circumstances.

We present and review all the different succession scenarios: Is transfer to a family member the right way ahead, or would sale to a third party be preferable? Is a family holding company or a foundation a possible and appropriate option? In all cases, our specialist lawyers take a holistic approach to finding a succession solution that suits your specific needs.

A particular feature of our tax law advice on company succession is that we always look “outside the tax law box” to take civil and family law aspects into consideration. 

The contact details of the CMS lawyers who specialise in the tax aspects of corporate succession are listed below. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or need assistance.
