Rights of Individuals and Inheritance, Estate Planning and Executorship

  • You are a business owner with a patchwork family and want to buy your own home: how do make provision for the event of the death of your spouse?
  • In the event of your death, you would like your spouse to benefit as much as possible from your estate: at the same time you want to ensure that your own assets pass to your children. What can you do?
  • You are single and want to have free disposal over your assets: how do you ensure that your estate does not pass to distant relatives but to the person or institution of your choice?
