Advising in complex matters of succession, inheritance law, and family law requires not only sound expertise in civil law, but also precise knowledge of tax aspects and the economic implications of a solution model. It is thus consistent to merge the specialist tax lawyer with the specialist family lawyer. At the same time, it is astonishing that out of more than 20,000 lawyers in the district of Munich Higher Regional Court not even ten possess this dual qualification.
In the area of private clients, Christoph Meyer has special expertise in establishing and managing family foundations, the creation of succession rules for medium-sized companies and high-net-worth individuals, as well as in all matters pertaining to family law, with a focus on more complex asset situations. The drafting of wills, powers of attorney, and marriage contracts also play an important role, with a considerable proportion of cases having international relevance. Should amicable solutions not be achievable, Mr. Meyer advises the clients, with careful strategic and tactical planning, but also with the required readiness to resolve disputes, through possible legal proceedings before civil and financial courts.
