Our work involving the law of persons and family law covers such matters as drawing up wills, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, cohabitation contracts, living wills and instruments of donations.
We also assist and advise families in settling estates, acting either as an independent civil-law notary appointed to handle the estate’s division or as a party-appointed adviser.
Much of our work consists of advising wealthy individuals and entrepreneurs in matters of Estate Planning. This involves a wide range of issues, such as how to pass on assets to the next generation and arrange control of the assets. In such work we always seek to achieve synergy between the corporate structure and the provisions under family law.
We also deal with cases of an international nature. Examples are drawing up wills for clients owning a home abroad, drafting prenuptial and postnuptial agreements for couples of different nationalities, and settling the estate of a Dutch citizen who had been living abroad
