Succession


Die Sound solutions for asset and business succession are a perennial problem. Published data on business succession confirm that in the next five years about 70,000 companies in Germany will need their succession regulated each year. Problems include economic, legal and tax aspects and the regulation of provisions.

We have put together a professionally skilled and experienced team for the complex problems of asset and business succession in our Succession skill centre. It is important for us to be able to plan and implement succession as a whole.
