We are committed, solution-oriented, individual and, above all, diligent. Those are particular features of the inheritance law practice at Friedrich Graf von Westphalen & Partner.

Our focus: All matters involving inheritance law - whether that be taking precautionary organizational measures for one's own death, or whether it be enforcing claims when a person has already died.

The organizational measures include planning the succession to one's estate with a long-term concept. This means not only drafting wills and testamentary contracts for senior citizens. We are also there for energetic businessmen in their prime: Death clauses in articles of association or partnership agreements, agreements on the transfer of ownership, anticipated inheritance, optimizing inheritance tax, wills for businessmen, wills for patchwork families, prenuptial agreements.

We not only draft, we also litigate: Inheritance claims, statutory legacies, certificates of inheritance, inheritance disputes, reclaiming gifts, challenging wills. Notwithstanding our personal sympathy for our clients: We argue objectively. Both in and out of court. We have our roots in Germany, but are networked globally. After all, the number of inheritance cases with international significance is on the rise.


1:1. This is how we work together. You decide upon a competent partner; he/she will then remain your point of contact. > more
