Lawyers for Private Clients

Whether you are an individual or the head of a company, the structuring, management and transfer of property is becoming increasingly complex due to changes in the legal and fiscal environment which must adapt to the international movement of assets and people. In this area which affects people's privacy, you must set your long term objectives while considering possible changes in your personal, family or property situation. You must take into account several branches of law and seek first class legal and fiscal advice. Our teams are structured in order to respond to these demands and to assist you in managing your various property plans (transfer of family company and preparation for succession, organisation of matrimonial arrangements and ownership implications of divorce, protection of loved ones, etc.). The teams consist of specialists in inheritance law, family law, real estate law, tax law and corporate law for aspects of company governance. Whatever your objectives may be, our experts will be able to help you achieve them while taking your specific situation into account.

In order to provide you with the specific advice that you need, our advisers always consider the human aspect in their thinking on property issues. Your needs and objectives will be studied in the context of the personal environment in the broad sense and family relationships which often play a significant role in decisions of organisation, management and transfer of property. If you need assistance internationally, our global network of experts will ensure that you receive the best advice via a single contact person in your country of origin. If you are involved in a civil or fiscal dispute our lawyers will be able to assist you throughout the procedure wherever you are based thereby ensuring the best transactional or legal outcome.
