Our firm is headquartered in the heart of Lake Como, Northern Italy.
Practice Areas —
Planning and reorganization of assets
We assist the families of private clients in planning and reorganizing their assets.
The consulting activity in this area covers all aspects of fiscal and inheritance planning. In order to preserve the present and future wealth, we suggest solutions to minimize taxation, both with regard to the income from the property and to the inheritance of real estate and personal property.
We are often called upon to work with the contact consultants of our clients and with the administrators of their assets.
Establishment of trusts for assets protection and inter generational transfer
A trust is a legal institution based on the mutual trust between two parties, the settlor and the trustee. The settlor entrusts some of their assets to the trustee, who administers and manages them in the sole interest of the beneficiaries of the income. At the end of the trust, the trustee shall transfer such assets to the final beneficiaries.
The use of the trust ensures the preservation of the assets entrusted, which are protected from potentially harmful external factors. Furthermore, the use of the trust ensures the unitary management of the assets entrusted and, as such, capable of giving continuity to the business regardless of the succession of generations.
We assist our clients, mostly business owners and professionals, in establishing trusts for asset protection and for the implementation of the generational transfer of companies and enterprises as well as in the drawing up of the relevant obligations and in the drafting of trust instruments.
Reliant and elderly people protection
We assist vulnerable people, particularly the elderly and their families in the management and organization of assets, in order to meet their living needs and their legitimate aims.
In fact, the legal protection measures are not always adequate to protect the interests of reliant people. The court may appoint a guardian or a tutor, who, however, is required to obtain special permits for the fulfillment of some legal acts (for example the sale of a property).
We have extensive experience in devising negotiating tools for the care and protection of the reliant and the elderly, which are an alternative to legal protection measures and to the judge supervising the guardianship.
Structuring of real estate transactions
We carry out consulting activities, chiefly on behalf of private clients, in relation to the structuring of real estate transactions of investment and development, enhancement and disinvestment of real estate, in both the residential and the commercial fields.
In particular, we support our clients in finding real estate acquisition strategies, which may consist either in the direct acquisition of the property or in its indirect acquisition through shareholding in pre-existing or newly established real estate companies.
In carrying out this activity, we examine preliminarily the fiscal implications which may arise from the real estate transaction.
Assistance in real estate acquisitions
We assist our Italian and foreign clients in the purchase of properties, having developed, in particular, an in-depth knowledge of the luxury real estate market of Lake Como.
More precisely we assist either the seller or the buyer in every phase of the real estate acquisition:
- submission of expressions of interest;
- signing of letters of intent;
- carrying out the operations of due diligence;
- formulation and acceptance of purchase offers;
- conclusion of preliminary and final contracts.
Furthermore, we support our clients in the negotiation of the contractual terms and conditions, preparing and drafting the relevant contracts.
