Our advisors will build a profitable and protective structure for your company and those of your private assets that are especially important to you (including real properties, cash values, and securities). This will reduce your tax burden and protect your most important assets for you and your family.

Companies are exposed to attacks and demands

A successful company is exposed to numerous attacks and demands. Competitors, fiscal authorities, social security funds, politics, certain consultants and, in individual cases, even an entrepreneur's employees or family members sometimes tend to think of the company with a sense of entitlement and bleed it dry. It is therefore one of the entrepreneur's ongoing duties to protect the company against third-party attacks and demands.

The suitable structuring of the company and private assets is extremely important in this context. The selection of the appropriate legal form can protect the company and assets against many threads. It will be part of our consulting assignment, to work out together which legal form will be the best in your specific situation.
