Foundations and non-profit organisations

As experienced consultants in the field of foundation law, we support you in the establishment of a foundation as well as in all legal and tax questions of foundation law – from maintenance of non-profit status to trust administration, public law foundations and sub-foundations.

The purposes of the foundations lie in a wide variety of areas, often in the field of the visual arts. Family foundations can also be an option for companies as a tax-optimised succession plan (keyword: double foundation).

In individual cases, due to the importance of the foundation, we carry out its annual audits. 

Many foundations are supported by us as regular clients, in some cases we also act as their managing directors.
