Comment: This firm respected for company succession and wealth structuring is on the ascent. This growth is based mainly on what Rittershaus describes as its “mediation-like company succession advice”: the team, which already had a large number of mediators, welcomed Corinna Stiehl, a mediator and inheritance and family lawyer from Schlatter, as associated partner, as well as two senior associates. This showed the rise in demand for activity beyond legal advice. Besides mediation, the firm is looking to expand its trust expertise.
Strengths: Integrated mediation and legal advice.
Recommended: Dr. Werner Born.
Practice: All-round advice to owner-managed companies on succession incl. family constitutions, wills, trust solutions. Tax advice in cooperation with tax advisory firm Falk & Co. Inheritance disputes and notary work. (4 partners, 6 associates)
Clients: ?? Erwin Junker (Junker Group) on company succession, incl. setup of foundation acting as shareholder; Arthur Weidenhammer on internal family votes; Mack family (Europa-Park) on anticipated succession, incl. family constitution for all generations; HNWI from Mathias Stinnes dynasty (ongoing); art collector on structuring succession.
