Private Clients & Trusts

We have been advising significant private clients and entrepreneurial families ever since our foundation in 1921 and have always considered this part of our core business. Since the private foundation was introduced in Austria, this focus has been complimented by expertise in all areas of the law of foundations, including providing advice to public and church bodies on an ongoing basis. We have a wealth of experience in all areas of law that are of interest and relevant to private clients, entrepreneurial families, private foundations, legal entities under public law and ecclesiastical institutions, from contract and company law (including shareholder agreements), business succession planning and management, to real estate and tax law. In the event of shareholder disputes, we of course offer our clients advice on conflict resolution, but also stand ready to represent them both in and out of court.
