German Legacy Claim

“When you are old and grey and full of sleep,
And nodding by the fire, take down this book,
And slowly read, and dream of the soft look
Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep.”

William Butler Yeats
Taken from: WHEN YOU ARE OLD

Legacy in Germany

Are you a member of a German community of heirs? Do you have claims against heirs in Germany? Are you a beneficiary of a bequest? Would you like to assert compulsory portion claims against heirs in Germany? Do you have an interest in a property in Germany? Do you have the feeling that your fellow heirs in Germany are discriminating against you?

I will help you to enforce your rights and claims. Since my grandfather was born in New York in 1889, I know from my own family that the distance between the USA or Canada and Germany, the language barrier, the “unknown” German law can be major hurdles and that these hurdles may be used to your disadvantage.

I can be supportive of you if

  • it concerns your participation in a community of heirs,
  • if you need a certificate of inheritance,
  • if you want to assert claims to a compulsory portion and disclosure,
  • if a decedent’s property is for sale or auction
  • if you have to conduct a legal dispute about your inheritance in Germany
  • if you seek a contractual solution
  • if you need or have to deal with an executor of will.

I have been practicing law since 1986 and thus, I have many years of experience in inheritance law, the enforcement of rights in court and in friendly out-of-court settlements.

It is my promise that I will stand up for your rights. I will communicate with you in English – no translation required between us.

The first contact by email is for free.

Yours faithfully,
Dr. Wolfgang Goessmann
