Q&A

What has been the highlight of your practice over the past 12 months?

That I managed that several heirs signed an inheritance contract and thereby agreed to solve a dispute that was going on for several years between the mother (testator) and her two children and the grandchildren. As the grandmother made several lifetime gifts to one of the grandchildren the legal situation was complex and delicate to solve. My predecessor gave up.

What advice would you give rising stars/new lawyers in the private client world?

I would recommend that they not only focus on the legal side of a case but also consider the family issues and other side issues which are involved and which are important for family members. Each family is different and it is crucial for a good lawyer to find out what is best for the specific family.
