Succession planning

Individuals are different from businesses when seeking legal counsel. They want to be treated individually and served by the same team of professionals. Switching people does not work. The reason is that the relationship between private individuals and their lawyers is one of trust. However, just like a legal entity, they need an active, agile and up-to-date team of professionals. This is our distinguishing feature. We have a team of professionals dedicated to solving all of our clients’ needs. Regardless of the complexity of the matter, our attorneys’ interaction allows for an efficient and quick resolution. Excellent customer service is our commitment.

In today’s world, it is inefficient to treat each legal matter separately and according to the specialization of the subject. A discussion of family succession requires an accompanying analysis of developments in tax, corporate and civil law. To this end, we have formed a multidisciplinary group so that a tax recommendation, for example, may be accompanied by a corporate law assessment; a civil law dispute may trigger tax proposals; or civil law advice may include corporate law support and tax definitions. Our goal is to provide an informed recommendation to the individual, taking care to ensure that each branch of law can be prompted to achieve practical solutions after a careful analysis of all branches of law.

One of the main differences in our field of succession planning is its global essence.

Through strategic cooperation with the Ablfs McKfnzif network, we work with professionals in a variety of jurisdictions around the world, supported by lawyers who are specialized in the field of succession planning. This encompasses multiple areas of law, including tax law, corporate law, civil law, criminal law and real estate law.

The different teams collaborate in structuring investments inside and outside Brazil, focusing on:

  • Advising on the presentation of efficient structures in view of each family’s specific objectives, in accordance with the legislation in force in the jurisdictions involved in the planning
