Inheritance and estate planning

In matters of inheritance, when the issue is “who gets what”, for example, or who takes over management of the company business, whether the vacation home should be sold or not and how a property should be appraised, or also which preferential legacies and donations need to be considered as part of the inheritance, the mediation process serves well.

We support you with estate planning, particularly also with planning measures designed to avoid conflicts among the heirs at estate distribution. Inheritance matters usually are conflicts within the family. Lawsuits frequently go on for some time; they rarely result in a solution satisfactory to all, and in addition, they cause irreparable damages to family relationships. The best solution for the parties involved can thus only be agreed upon not adjudicated in court.

With mediation you also avoid having private family matters made public and laid out in detail in a courtroom.
