International inheritance law

In cross-border inheritance cases, the first question to be clarified is which national legal system is applicable in the specific case. Only then can an assessment be made as to how the estate is to be distributed among the heirs.

Determining the applicable law is a complex question that cannot be answered in a generalised manner. Our lawyers specialising in inheritance law are the right people to contact in this regard.

We will be happy to check which legal system is applicable in your case and, if necessary, provide you with a competent contact person from abroad. Particularly in the area of US inheritance law, we are also happy to refer you to our information on inheritance law in the USA
