Oppenhoff & Partner

Comment: Company succession and trusts, for which this Cologne firm is respected, is playing an increasingly central role. A young partner set about consolidating the many diffuse HNWI and family business contacts, esp. from the corporate and tax practices, which are crucial. As a result, work for clients other than regular clients has shot up and often involves wealth in the tens of millions of euros, and even into the billions.
Strengths: Interface with ?corporate and ?tax.
Recommended: Dr. Dr. Georg Maier-Reimer, Dr. Harald Gesell (both corporate), Dr. Axel Bödefeld (tax).
Practice: All-round advice to German and international family businesses, family branches and HNWIs on company and wealth succession (inheritance contracts, prenups, wills), tax and corporate (articles of association, shareholder disputes). Increasingly charity and trust law. (5 equity partners, 3 salary partners, 3 associates)
Clients: ?? Georg Baron von Ullmann on loan and wealth restructuring in connection with dispute with Sal. Oppenheim and Madeleine Schickedanz; Benckiser Trust concerning social impact bonds for charitable projects; all-round advice to Reimann family/Benckiser heirs on inheritance, family, corporate and trust law; Neven DuMont family members; Sebastian Vettel, Wegmann family (public knowledge).
