Cross-border matters

We find ourselves more frequently advising clients on international matters, be it on account of assets in another country, a nationality other than Swiss, a last residence or a death abroad. In these cases we frequently work with trusted partner law firms in the relevant countries.

Reasons for appointing an executor

You are free to decide upon the appointment and choice of an executor. In order to avoid disputes and to ensure the simple settlement of an estate, it may be useful to appoint an executor. However, there are also situations where no executor is required.

Testamentary protection for minors and those requiring support

Special considerations must be taken into account for heirs that are minors or require support. Even in these cases, there are planning options to ensure optimal assistance and support from a person you trust.
