Family and assets

Every family is unique and has its own needs and opinions, even when it comes to assets and how they are transferred to the next generation. This starts with understanding your personal situation. The civil-law notaries in our family law department will discuss this and other matters with you on a personal level, and advise you on how to record your wishes in the most optimal way possible. Family ties come into play, making this an emotional issue and difficult to oversee. Together, we ensure that your wishes are laid down properly, so that future problems can be avoided. This creates peace of mind and clarity. How you prefer to bequeath your assets is, of course, up to you. We will simply help you record your wishes.
