To preserve our clients’ wealth now and for the next generation, Arendt has assembled a multi-disciplinary private wealth team that covers all aspects of wealth structuring from a corporate, real estate, civil and estate perspective, as well as a tax law standpoint.
Our assistance includes the design and implementation of wealth holding structures, using a comprehensive range of tools such as corporate vehicles, regulated investment funds and life insurance policies. For estate planning, our specialists advise on wills, donations and matrimonial agreements, and for sophisticated investment needs, we can help clients create private equity and real estate structures, in Luxembourg or abroad.
Our team also has extensive experience in advising clients on fulfilment of their philanthropic goals.
For international families, we provide advice on private law and inheritance issues in their respective jurisdictions, including any cross-border aspects. In recent years we have been involved in the administration or liquidation of several large international estates.
The private wealth practice assists with the relocation of clients to Luxembourg and advises them on any administrative, regulatory or tax issues that may entail.
We bring long experience of using a broad range of estate planning tools, tailoring services to the specific needs and ambitions of each client, and seeking creative solutions suited to each set of circumstances.
In addition, our private wealth litigation team has significant experience in sophisticated domestic and multi-jurisdictional estate disputes. Although we always seek an amicable resolution, notably through mediation, we are ready when necessary to defend the interests of our clients in court in all kinds of estate-related disputes, including:
- Challenges to the validity of wills
- Forced heirship statutes, clawback of donation, restoration or accounting of gifts
- Actions for statement of accounts
- Disputes involving family businesses
- Investor and shareholder disputes
