International Estate Law & Succession

Succession and estate planning are sensitive issues that require not only professional competence but also a comprehension and sensitivity for the client's individual needs and situation. 

The Brödermann Jahn Succession Law Team works at the intersection of inheritance law and corporate law both in pre-death succession planning as well as in distributing the inheritance after death. The Succession Law Team combines Brödermann Jahn's core competences in the area of corporate and business law with special expertise in national and international inheritance law. Our Succession Law Team also gives advice on pre-nuptial agreements and assists in the creation of foundations. We also offer our services as executors of your will or administrators of your future estate. 

We advise heirs, beneficiaries of the will or a compulsory portion as well as executors in the division and settlement of the estate in national or cross-border cases. They may rely on our broad experience in national and international transactions and in dealing with foreign legal systems. Our international network is a real asset in this respect. 

The Succession Law Team consists of several attorneys and support lawyers. The team is led by Andrea Tiedemann, a Certified Specialist in Succession Law and holder of a Certification on Execution of Wills. Further team members are Christina Gatz and Laura Kaufmann. Christina Gatz has been working in the area of inheritance law for many years. She has successfully completed the training to be admitted Certified Specialist in Succession Law. Laura Kaufmann is currently working on her doctoral thesis in international inheritance law. All team members are qualified in handling complex inheritance law cases as well as inheritance litigation and have profound knowledge not only in the relevant inheritance law but also in Private International Law and International Law of Civil Procedure. In addition, all team members are experienced in international and cross-border cases. 

The team works in German, English, Spanish, Portuguese and French.
