Civil law partnerships

A useful, safe instrument for retaining the necessary control

Why create a civil law partnership?

A Civil law partnership can be an interesting technique of inheritance planning for the larger estates.

A civil law partnership is a simple and flexible type of company. Combined with a donation, it allows you, for example, to transfer your investments to your heirs during your lifetime and yet retain control of your investments and continue to enjoy the revenues from them.

It can also be a useful instrument for transferring and managing the shares of your family business. If you contribute the assets of your family company to a Civil law partnership, you can start preparing the transfer without loss of control (even selling) nor revenues (if so desired).
