Advising private clients, foundations and family-owned businesses is a central focus of SKALING. We support our clients in the long-term, legal and tax optimised planning of their assets.

In particular, we focus on the protection of private and entrepreneurial assets from intra-family conflicts, accompanying the structuring and tax optimisation of the transition to the next generation, as well as the involvement of non-profit institutions in the succession process.

Our advice on Private Clients covers in particular:

  • Corporate and tax structuring of family-owned businesses and family foundations, 

  • Pooling and voting agreements as well as family governance, 

  • Advice on the establishment of non-profit entities, including coordination with the tax authorities and foundation supervisory authorities,

  • Guidance during the succession process and corporate succession, e.g. regarding an advice on transfers within the family or to the management, 

  • Advice in shareholder disputes.
