Representation in Contentious Trust matters

Although no trusts exist under German law in the strictest sense, there are some German legal instruments that are similar to Trusts (e.g. Dauertestamentsvollstreckung, Vor- und Nacherbschaft, Stiftung, Treuhand) and German courts may interpret foreign trusts the equivalent of German legal instruments. We represent U.S. beneficiaries as well as Trustees in German courts, e.g

  • Breach of Fiduciary Duty,
  • Accounting,
  • Removal of Trustee (z.B. “Dauertestamentsvollstrecker”),
  • Trust Modification or
  • Trust Termination.
