Areas of Law of our Specialist Law Firm for Inheritance Law

Our law firm consults you comprehensively on inheritance law including all succession and asset transfer issues, each under consideration of inheritance tax- and gift tax-related aspects.

The area of law „consultation on inheritance law” of our specialized law firm comprises all topics that relate to the transfer of assets by the way of death. Pursuant to German inheritance law, this means in a case of inheritance (in the narrower sense), a transfer according to the German inheritance law principle of universal succession.

This is a matter of which legal consequences arise through the death of the testator and which rights the heirs or other persons with claims against the inheritance (such as legatees or persons entitled to receive a compulsory share) have, in the broadest sense.

Wealth Succession and Company Succession

A wealth succession means that assets are transferred from transferor or donor to the successor in lifetime.

Frequently, this is implemented by donations or so-called transfer contracts which can also define the considerations of the assets’ recipient towards the donor, or the granting of rights of usufruct or of a permanent right of residence.

We also support our clients to set up these contracts in a tax-optimized way and in every other respect to protect the interests of the transferor, for example his own retirement provision, in an optimal way.

Support for international inheritances

Despite our law firm’s even stronger focus on inheritance law since 2020, these areas of law and the special areas of law are still key to our law firm, and we gladly answer our clients’ questions on succession, assets and taxes, for which Dr. Hosser’s heart beats as a German lawyer for inheritance law. We also support German or English-speaking heirs, legatees or other transferees based in Germany or abroad with regard to international assets and international inheritances with connections to foreign countries.
