Tax & Private Client

Not only our lifestyles, but also the legal framework is constantly changing and becoming more and more complex. This makes it essential to provide foresighted advice on how to structure and organise your affairs. Whether asset protection, establishing a home in Austria, or passing on your assets or company to the next generation – we are by your side legally. We support individuals, family offices, foundations and family businesses from all over the world on issues of family and inheritance law, foundation and corporate law and, of course, tax law.
