The issue of succession is always present in medium-sized companies because a successful business looks beyond the horizon of the founder’s life’s work.
A far-seeing corporate and inheritance structure relieves the management of a major responsibility and gives the following generation a clear perspective. Anticipatory succession, a business will, a management buy-out or another form of passing on the business later to family members or externally are among the possibilities which we implement for our clients. In planning such structures, we take account of all elements – not only the necessary legal expertise but also sensitivity for the requirements of the individual constellation. As experienced testamentary executors, we implement the testamentary bequests with the greatest care.
The lack of succession provisions often leads to prolonged disputes. We represent heirs, groups of heirs and shareholders in negotiations and disputes, always with a sustainable solution ensuring the long-term continuation of the business in view.
