Asset Protection

The Luxembourg Law of the 21 December 2012 has reserved to the regulated professions (such as lawyers, public notaries, certified public accountants and public auditors) the right to provide services as a family office.

The objective of all the family offices is to offer various opportunities to families eager to invest, protect your assets Luxembourg or optimize their wealth, transmitted from generation to generation. The goal of clients is to grow their assets on a medium or long term and to elaborate investments strategies according to their needs. Our objective is to offer the opportunity to our clients to elaborate an estate planning strategy and to manage legal risks ensuing from their assets.

We advise our client and guide him to set-up tailor-made structures. Our law firm is in contact with numerous banks as well as various insurance companies providing multiple specific financial vehicles in Luxembourg asset protection. However, as a law firm, we limit ourselves to a role of legal adviser to allow the client to benefit from the maximum protection that Luxembourg and its extremely well framed and strict legislation can offer.

Against this background, we limit ourselves exclusively to providing you with four valuable legal services:

  • to incorporate Family Wealth Management companies (a type of Luxembourg holdings) when suitable to your tax environment;
  • to optimise the protection and the taxation of IP rights through the incorporation of IP Box holdings;
  • to assist you in your relocation as a physical person or in the relocation of your companies;
  • to assist you to review from a legal standpoint structured insurance life policies (review of provisions, legal advice on provisions and donation techniques, incorporation of holdings whose shares could be lodged in life insurance policies, etc.).
