Family Offices

"Service is always case by case" - Carsten K Rath.

When organising and supporting the administration and protection of a family’s wealth over generations, not only organisational and legal challenges need to be addressed. Conflict potential (within a family) also needs to be taken into account. That is why it is so important to have a reliable, experienced partner who does not merely perform these tasks according to an established “routine” but takes into account the circumstances of each individual case as well as the specific (family) background factors.

We do not provide support in a “routine” manner; rather, we put the focus on you. In accordance with Carsten K. Rath’s quote, we always take into account your individual needs – whether in administration, the handling of your legal affairs or in conflict resolution.
