Jan-Eckhard is a member of the Munich Private Clients team around partners Christoph Philipp and Stephan Viskorf.

The team specializes 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.

Within the team, Jan-Eckhard focuses on restructurings and the optimization of holding structures, as well as all aspects of corporate succession. In his doctoral thesis, he deals with the tax treatment of usufruct structures in the context of family business successions.
