Attorney for inheritance law in St. Gallen
On a case-by-case basis, inheritance law sets out who is qualified to be an heir and how the assets of the testator will be divided between the heirs. Generally, any natural person can become an heir and will one day be a testator. In many cases, the composition of wills, contracts of inheritance, and inheritance division contracts is highly complex. In addition, planning a testation can involve the passing on of a company from one generation to the next or third parties.
