Our Private Wealth practice advises wealthy families and entrepreneurs on the legal structuring of their wealth and investments, such as the acquisition or sale of a company, the acquisition and holding of a participation in a company, the acquisition and holding of real estate — whether located in Luxembourg or abroad — or simply the acquisition and holding of financial assets.
Our areas of expertise include civil law and estate law.
In our structuring process, we advise private clients in the setting up and follow-up of corporate vehicles and partnerships or on contractual vehicles such as insurance contracts or fiduciary agreements to hold their assets. For estate planning purposes, we advise on wills, donations and matrimonial agreements. To cover more sophisticated needs, we are able to assist our clients in the setting up of trust structures.
Our practice area has a strong expertise in providing family office services for private clients and assisting them in their global wealth structuring and wealth planning.
Our Private Wealth team is also active in the area of relocation of private clients to Luxembourg and advises them on all administrative, regulatory and tax issues that may be linked to the process.
For international families, we provide advice on international private law issues and international inheritance issues. Over the years, we have been involved in the administration and liquidation of some major international estates.
For all our activities, we draw on expertise from our colleagues in the Tax Law practice area.
