US and Canadian Trusts

Trusts with assets in Europe (especially in Germany) might face extensive legal and tax issues that need to be taken care of.

Advice is essential before a trustor or beneficiary relocates to Europe. Continental European legal systems will question the legal capability of Anglo-American trusts to claim assets in Europe, if not structured properly.

Should the trustor or the beneficiary decease in Europe, structural legal questions can lead to a loss of rights and assets for the trust.

As a full service provider for North American trusts we offer to take care of

  • Paperwork to transfer goods or arrange funeral transports to the US or Canada
  • Tax issues
  • Litigation work including but not limited to real estate, other potential heirs, civil law
  • Legal advice prior to relocating a trustor or a beneficiary to Europe.
