Bernhard Würzle

 

  • Bernhard Würzle, Attorney-at-Law, Mediator: „I have been working in the field of inheritance law for more than 20 years and for many years even exclusively. In particular, I specialise in advising and representing individuals and companies in all questions of asset transfer in lifetime and succession upon death. This includes the drafting of wills, asset transfer among living persons as well as corporate succession considering all aspects of inheritance, company and tax law. On your behalf, I enforce legal claims to inheritance and compulsory portion claims or repel them whether in or out of court.”
  • In its yearly special edition “Germany’s Top Lawyers”, the widespread and well-known newspaper FOCUS declared Mr. Bernhard Würzle to be one of the leading specialists in inheritance law in Germany in 2016 and did so again for 2017 and 2018.
