International Law of Succession

Each country has its own rules of inheritance. Therefore, in case of a foreign estate, the first question we need to answer is what inheritance law applies. Bear in mind that a foreign estate goes beyond the existence of certain assets located in foreign countries, such as the inheritance of a residence located abroad. In fact, a foreign connection exists already in bi-national marriages, as the foreign spouse dies and assets are inherited locally.

International succession cases often involve a number of tax and legal peculiarities that must be observed. It is therefore advisable to seek early contact with a knowledgeable lawyer. At GRP Rainer, we offer lawyers with ample and proven experience in national and international inheritance law. Tax considerations being always an issue, we can also provide tax advisors with advanced knowledge in this area.

Given the importance of this topic, we recommend you to seek advice from one of our attorneys and thus obtain the best possible assistance. A comprehensive legal advice from an experienced lawyer can deal with any difficulties and issues in advance. The early design of appropriate regulations will ensure that heirs are not unnecessarily burdened with inheritance problems.

GRP Rainer boasts a team of highly motivated and committed attorneys. We shall be glad to provide you with detailed, individual advice on any inquiries connected to international inheritance law in our law firm.
