Estate Law

Forty-Four Avocats can help you plan your estate wisely so that you can pass on your assets to your loved ones. A good anticipation allows you to avoid many problems for your heirs after your death.

We answer your questions such as whether a will is valid, what are the rights of the legal or reserved heirs, in particular the surviving spouse, cohabiting partner or children, and how real estate and assets located in Switzerland or abroad are treated. We can act as executor of your will.

Forty-four Avocats will carry out any procedure in Switzerland or abroad to assert your rights as an heir and will assist you in case of litigation.

Our lawyers, one of whom has worked in the legal department of two banks, are also consulted by heirs who are domiciled abroad and who are looking for assets that the deceased held as direct holder or beneficial owner with a Swiss bank.
