Succession for HNWIs and UHNWIs clients

Our work with HNWIs and UHNWIs includes legal advice on a wide range of inheritance law issues. We consider all aspects of business operations and business stability after inheritance when providing legal consultations on succession planning. Together with our corporate lawyers, we offer legal advice on aligning corporate documentation with the testator's goals to formalize agreements with business partners and mitigate corporate conflict risks.
