Attorney Service European Private Law

Expert consultations regarding the European private law / international law / Italian law

Today, European private law and international private law are of a higher significance than ever. One is not always familiar with the novelties, foreign elements are partly not directly apparent in a legal case. 

A large number of international regulations and European statutory orders are part of the German statutory order - the knowledge of which is required in terms of employment law and liability. At the same time, foreign statutory orders can be summoned via the conflict of laws. Due to this there is a higher risk of professional liability, in particular as consultations related to non-European law are regularly not covered by the professional liability insurance (for further details see Borgmann in AnwBl 12/2005, p.732).

We create legal opinions related to the European private law and civil procedure, international private law for clients, attorneys and courts. Our frequently updated library and our connection to the most important jurisdiction databases enable us to competently deal with your issue. 

The costs for a pre-procedural, process-related private opinion are principally refundable, if the party is not capable of carrying through an appropriate pleading due to missing technical knowledge (BGH - Beschl. 23.05.2006 - VB ZB 7/05 = NJW 2006,2415/Federal Court of Justice, enactment 23 May 2006 - VB ZB 7/05 = NJW).

  • 1/20: Inheritance tax guidelines 2019 come into force

    Tax guidelines are instructions on legal interpretation issued by the Federal Government of Germany, with the approval of the Bundesrat, to the tax authorities. They are issued by the Federal Ministry of Finance for the purpose of uniform application of tax law, to avoid undue hardship and to minimise administrative expense. The Inheritance Tax Directive 2019 is intended "to take account essentially of the changes in the law that have taken place in the meantime, changes in administrative opinion and the highest court rulings". First and foremost, it should be noted that the inheritance of business assets under Section 13a of the Inheritance Tax Act (ErbStG) has become more reliable, in particular with regard to the calculation of the wage bill, including in cases of conversion, the retention rules for business assets, advance deduction for family businesses, pension assets, real estate transferred in the event of a business split, and the investment clause.
