  • Mise en place d’organismes à but non lucratif- philanthropie

    For many individuals and families, making a difference to lives and communities through philanthropy can be the culmination of a life’s work. A family charity is a great opportunity to contribute to a range of good causes and help engage younger generations in running the charity and the work it undertakes, whilst developing an understanding of family values.

    We advise across all aspects of charity and trust law, particularly on issues relating to the formation and governance of charities, not-for-profit organisations, social enterprises and private trusts. Our practice covers the establishment of new charities by businesses, livery companies and families, and subsequent advice on all aspects of their administration, operations, taxation and dealings with the charity commissions.

    We also handle disputes that arise in relation to the administration of charities, including advice to charity trustees on how they should deal with disputes that the charity may have with third parties. See our Family Business Passport

  • Mise en place d’une stratégie de transmission des actifs

    Asset protection has been gaining in importance as the targeted preservation of private assets against access by creditors (banks, fiscal authorities, spouse, etc.). This equally applies to both high net worth individuals and entrepreneurs. Moreover, recent legislation and jurisdiction have steadily increased the liability risks incurred by members of supervisory, advisory and management boards as well as managing directors. It is therefore of crucial importance to protect private assets against such new risks. At the same time, asset protection measures are becoming ever more complex, especially if assets are spread throughout the world or otherwise subject to external relationships. Taylor Wessing boasts a team of experienced, globally networked lawyers with in-depth expertise in the implementation of global asset protection measures.
    Our consultancy in this regard focuses on structuring that permits private assets to be shielded against entrepreneurial risks. The relevant measures include the establishment of domestic family foundations or the use of ‟marital property swings”. Another frequently applied means of structuring is a transfer of the family home.

  • Préparation de la transmission d’une entreprise familiale

    Succession issues in family-controlled and family-owned businesses and shareholdings raise complex estate planning issues. The owner will not only need to consider family interests but, just as important, the interests of the company and its employees when planning his/her succession. A smooth transition from present ownership and possibly management to the new owner(s) and managers is obviously important to the continued success of the business. We take care to ensure that all facets of this complex process are addressed, including tax planning and asset protection issues.

  • Successions nationales et internationales

    We advise individuals and families on their estate planning. This begins with a thorough understanding of the individual’s/family’s objectives and goals, together with an in-depth analysis of their current asset structuring. Implementing the intended succession typically involves tax planning, structuring and drafting wills, and contracts of inheritance. In addition we advise heirs through complex inheritance and probate issues and represent them in out-of-court disputes, as well as in court proceedings.
    Today, it is common that members of a family have residences in several different countries and regions. Owning assets in different countries around the world can greatly complicate the probate and succession process. Our lawyers are proficient in international probate issues, the drafting of wills and inheritance contracts within diverse jurisdictions, and the interplay between the succession laws of involved countries. We aim, through asset protection structures, to avoid the difficulties that can arise through probate procedures in different countries.
