Succession planning

Knowing how to take care of the day to day of the individual Individuals are different from companies when they seek legal advice. They want a customized treatment, and they want to be assisted by the same professional team. Rotation of professionals does not work, because the connection established between the individuals and their lawyers is based on trust. However, just like the legal entities, they need an active, responsive and up-to-date professional team. This is our special feature. We have a professional team focused on solving anything that the client needs. And, however complex the subject may be, the interactions between our lawyers will enable an efficient and quick solution. An excellent treatment for the client. This is our commitment.
 
A Multidisciplinary Group Nowadays, it does not work to deal with each legal subject separately and according to the subject specialization.

A succession discussion to the family presumes the concurrent analysis of the tax, corporate, and civil effects.

Bearing that in mind, we created a Multidisciplinary Group, so that a tax recommendation, for example, may be accompanied by the corporate examination; a civil discussion may trigger tax suggestions; or a civil advisory may import corporate caution and tax definitions. Our goal is to provide a profound recommendation to the individual, so that each legal field is involved in achieving practical solutions, after the due analysis of all legal fields.
