Together with Stephan Viskorf, Christoph is head of the Munich Private Clients team.

The team specialises in providing holistic advice to high-net-worth individuals, especially family entrepreneurs and their mostly complex international asset structures. “Our clients can expect advice that comprehensively considers not only all legal aspects but - as our experience shows - also all personal aspects that family life itself, and the life of an entrepreneurial family in particular, entails.”

The Private Clients team therefore brings together specialists from the fields of corporate law, inheritance and family law and, above all, tax law in order to quickly and efficiently grasp all the individual needs of our clients and to be able to provide them with highly qualified advice.

Christoph advises in particular in the areas of national and international succession planning and asset structuring, including inheritance law and inheritance tax law. He focuses on advising family businesses, foundations and wealthy individuals. This also includes the drafting of wills, execution of wills and marriage contracts, including divorce proceedings.
