Inheritance law and foundation law
Arranging property succession in a sensible manner is a quite complex process from a legal perspective. In this context, we can advise you on drafting a will and concluding inheritance contracts, although also on the option of transferring assets whilst you are still alive, possibly justified by beneficial use (usufruct).
Where foundation law is concerned, the focus is on establishing a foundation, drawing up articles of association, determining the capital base and defining the purpose of the foundation. We are also happy to provide legal support for you after the foundation has been created.

Compliance literally means "adhering to the rules" and is a legal term for the observance of legislation, standards and guidelines, although also of codes of conduct voluntarily established in companies. Compliance is the term used to describe legally correct, fair conduct. Compliance management involves monitoring the regulatory framework and the organisational structure to safeguard against breaches of regulations. We are happy to advise you if the need arises, perhaps in the introduction of compliance regulations oriented to your company's business practice.

Private international law
In EUREGIO, many legal relationships, particularly in the fields of private and commercial law, have a cross-border dimension. This means that the relevant regulations of the respective foreign law must be observed and that preliminary questions, i.e., which law is to be applied and in which country your claims can be asserted, are also to be answered.
