We bring life to succession planning

Succession planning and preparation is one of the biggest challenges for entrepreneurs. This process is about setting the stage for the company’s future and maintaining peace within the family. And that is exactly where our expertise comes in.

Our specialists develop tailored solutions for company succession – solutions that take into account civil law and tax law aspects while also being mindful of the family’s individual requirements and expectations. Together with LeitnerLeitner and well-known international partners and university experts, we have been advising family-owned companies with regard to succession-related issues for many years, and we support them on the way to a successful future.
