The Swiss perspective
The book deals with most of the issues concerning the transfer of assets within the context of a succession ; it covers questions such as the general issue of mortis causa dispositions under Swiss law, as well as those of the advance care directive but also situations such as business transfers upon death or transfers of art collections, and the devolution of assets for philanthropic purposes. It also addresses the specific problems faced by families with international exposure as well as the management of proceedings in multiple jurisdictions.
As practitioners, the authors identify in a pragmatic fashion the common problems, the potential solutions and the appropriate legal instruments available under Swiss but also foreign law.
