Last Will and estate planning
There is hardly any thing worse than disputes within the family. Also after one’s own death one wishes to avoid it. We support you in developing a comprehensive strategy, both on the arising legal issues and for communicating with your family. Our clear legal wording minimizes any potential for conflicts and ensures a smooth execution of your last will as best as possible.
- Clarity and legal certainty in the drafting of wills
- Holistic wealth planning (e.g. marriage contracts, foundation law)
- Ensuring acceptance by family members
Coming to terms with one’s own mortality is not easy. It becomes even more difficult when one has to fear that one’s next of kin will be mired in years of disputes in court after one’s own demise. This potential for conflict can be minimised: We draft clearly understandable and legally secure wills that eliminate many potential points of conflict. Due to the now applicable law on compulsory portions in Austria, considerable scope for drafting can also be exploited. In addition, we advise you holistically on your asset planning in order to secure the implementation of your last will and testament at an early stage through marriage contracts, foundations or other constructions.
In addition, however, social and emotional elements are also extremely important. Because these cannot be the subject of a lawsuit after the passing of a loved one, proxy litigation often takes place in court, which not only devours resources, but also often irreparably destroys relationships. The law of enrichment is of great importance here. Through open communication and reflection on relationships, many disputes can be nipped in the bud. With our experience, we are happy to assist you in this as well.
„Especially when it comes to organizing their legacy our clients appreciate our integrated approach. Thus, next to our legal expertise you can also trust in our people skills.“
