Family foundations and/or charitable foundations are suitable tools for the long-term estate and succession planning.

The Succession Law Team of Brödermann Jahn assists its clients all the way from the formation of a family foundation or a charitable foundation to its management.

We advise the founder on which form of foundation makes the most sense in view of the specific needs and integrate the foundation into the succession concept. We advise on the formation process, coordinate the articles of association with the state authorities and the tax office, and assist through the proceedings of the official recognition process by governmental authorities and the tax recognition as a non-profit charitable foundation by the tax authorities. In tax and non-profit law issues, we offer legal assistance through our tax cooperation partners (www.tun.consulting).

We also advise already existing foundations in the further course of business in all questions of foundation and non-profit law, as well as in inheritance law in the case of bequests by the founder or third parties, and in gift law in the case of lifetime transfers to the foundation.
