Business Succession

We help our clients ensure "timely" and smooth implementation of the difficult business succession process. We advise business owners, potential buyers from within the family and other family members as well as interested third parties from Germany or abroad in matters that extend from preparation and contractual implementation to the transition phase.

Our areas of specialization:

  • Structuring business succession (in consideration of inheritance, tax and corporate law aspects)
  • Advice and legal structuring and financing of severance claims from departing shareholders
  • Development of foundation models and concepts for the satisfaction of family members who are either entitled to a compulsory portion or will be granted a sub-participation
  • Advice and support during the transition phase as external consultants, members of supervisory or administrative boards or executors of estates
