The practice group for family law and inheritance law at Raue LLP was formed in 1978. Private individuals, families, and family-owned enterprises all benefit from our decades of experience. We lend support to our clients in all legal matters wherever conflicts within the family need to be resolved – be they disputes between spouses or between generations. We assist our clients in finding the solutions that are right for them, and we will protect their interests in both settlement negotiations and in court. Where matters of inheritance law are concerned, we will help with succession planning, structuring and drafting wills, and distributing the inheritance among co-heirs. In all of these fields, we will duly consider tax aspects as well as the needs of any business enterprises that may be involved.
