Specialist Inheritance Law Firm and Law Firm for Inheritance Law

HOSSER Rechtsanwalt is your law firm for inheritance law, company succession and for corporate litigation. We are a specialist law firm for all questions around inheritances, inheriting and bequeathing assets, estate settlement as well as planning one’s own succession.

After a succession case, we offer our clients a thorough and competent consultation on the estate, the distribution of the estate, any special legacy, the community of heirs under German inheritance law, possible claims for a compulsory share, and we consult you on questions of execution of the estate.

For clients who want to structure their anticipated succession, i. e. to transfer their assets to the designated successors during their lifetime – mostly by means of a gift – our specialist law firm for inheritance law offers a consultation on German gift tax law and German inheritance tax law with Dr. Hosser as a German specialist tax lawyer and we can illustrate which taxes would have to be paid after a case of succession.

If you want to draft a last will and testament, as the case may be together with your spouse or registered life partner, then we are the right law firm for you: Dr. Hosser will be your experienced attorney-at-law and specialist lawyer for inheritance law, who will consult you on the drafting of last wills and testaments and on how you can dispose about assets in your last will, different from the results under the statutory heirship rules, on how to determine the amount of the share in the estate, or on what would happen, if you do not leave a testamentary disposition. A professional will drafting usually prevents larger controversies at least as it comes to the interpretation of the last will and testament, its validity as regards form etc.

In many succession cases, inheritance disputes arise about the estate of the decedent or the inheritance, the amount of the inheritance or of a concrete share in it, a compulsory share or about what the decedent left to a legatee. A competent legal consultation with a lawyer specialized in inheritance law, like Dr. Hosser, usually helps to avoid further escalations in an inheritance dispute. If, in individual cases, the dispute cannot be settled, we will be glad to represent you before the German probate court or in an estate litigation in Germany.

On which cases is the specialist law firm for inheritance law specialized?

We decided deliberately to specialize on the consultation on and representation in inheritance law and estate litigation as well as on company successions, while taking into consideration the respective implications pursuant to the German inheritance tax law or German gift tax law.

In addition, we consult and represent you competently and with thorough experience on all issues regarding corporate litigation. These procedures are similar to estate litigation cases in manifold respects.

Because of our long-term experience with international succession cases and estates with international relevance and our expertise we can consult you on your international succession planning as well.

Assigning a specialized inheritance law firm is also useful if you are involved in adversary proceedings before the probate court, for example because of a certificate of inheritance or when you want to be represented in an estate litigation before German courts. We are experienced with such matters.

Why should I assign the specialist law firm for inheritance law Dr. Hosser?

Our law firm for inheritance law is distinguished by our ability to “pull out all the stops” and reach what is legally possible and reasonable in your inheritance law issues. This is especially important in estate litigations, where the issue often enough is not money, but to assert oneself against a heir, co-heirs, legatees, claimants of compulsory shares, an executor of a last will, or other persons claiming their part, or to defend oneself against other claims or behavior from these.

As a rule, you will be consulted and represented „by the owner“ of our law firm and you can also count on an excellent service by our experienced team.

As a full member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners, Dr. Hosser also has the international experience which is required to deal with international succession cases.
