In many respects, inheritance law holds a special position in civil law. Even though everyone will be confronted with the topic of inheritance law at least once in their lifetime, unfortunately the lawyer is often contacted when the proverbial horse has already bolted and it is too late. Inheritance law forms the cornerstone of cross-generation planning and the handing down of personal assets. As an essential characteristic of the right to own property (article 14 of the German constitution) it provides protection of fundamental rights. In view of the diversity of problems involved in inheritance law and the often expensive consequences of making mistakes, seeking legal advice for arrangements regarding inheritance matters is always advisable. Our attorneys at KBM Legal in Cologne and Düsseldorf, Germany will give you comprehensive support.
Identifying preferred arrangements and goals
It often takes an extensive consultation session for our clients to realise that they have neither a precise idea about their family’s situation upon death of a family member nor a sensible plan for asset distribution in place. A last will and testament is the only way a testator can have an influence on succession and the manner with which his/her assets are handled after death. In some cases, an individual can rest assured that their estate is in order simply by drawing up a handwritten will in keeping with simple protocols. Frequently, however, long-term planning and a sound concept are required to protect the rights of the surviving spouse and for exclusion of any unwelcome heirs. We, the lawyers of KBM Legal, will help you analyse your goals and wishes regarding succession planning and implement them through a concept that safeguards you legally and financially.
