Private Clients

Business relationships are challenging and can become even more complicated when family relationships become entangled. Understanding the link between family and business, and with the occurrence of significant events in life, such as death, marriage or divorce, we can help protect both the property and non-property interests of our clients. Moreover, in cooperation with our Private Wealth practice group, we also offer personalised legal services to high-net-worth individuals in the field of private wealth management, estate planning and inheritance, having competence in large-scale cross-border inheritance cases and developing business succession and continuation schemes.

We offer full support to clients in a wide range of family law contexts, including inheritance and matrimonial matters. Our team of experts has a remarkable track record in representing clients in negotiations that have ended in amicable out-of-court solutions or court disputes ending in fundamental judgements from the national supreme courts. Matrimonial matters where we provide assistance do not only cover joint property disputes but also property disputes deriving from the long-term cohabitation, which triggers legal consequences on property relations. Drafting of prenuptial and postnuptial agreements also falls into the scope of our expertise, as it is the best way to manage assets in the context of marriage.
