Endowments and Foundations Law

Think and act in a capital-forming manner – and be charitable at the same time. The foundation as a model of asset bundling for the advancement of a specific purpose that lies close to one’s heart is enjoying increasing popularity. This is not only based on the fact that the purpose of the foundation determined in the foundation bye-laws is also binding for subsequent generations and can no longer be amended, but also on the possibility of tax-optimized structuring. There is a whole range of donation forms similar to foundations (such as contributions, endowments, grants subject to conditions, trust or dependent donation, and finally the legally independent donation), which can be considered depending on the aim of the intended promotion. We identify the possibilities to you, based upon which you make the decision. You should be able to understand why a specific variation in configuration will best satisfy your requirements. First in the second step and then, when the basic principles are certain, we will prepare the transfer with you. The contracts or foundation documents necessary for the respective model will be drafted by us and thoroughly discussed with you. We will accompany you up to the legally effective conclusion and naturally beyond that.
