CONFIANZ has particular expertise in family successions, ensuring the continuity of family-owned businesses, which often entails the need for complex corporate reorganisations, e.g. placing non-essential assets or assets not attached to the family business group with businesses with no corporate risk via splits/spin offs and mergers, based on tax-neutral regimes so as not to generate unnecessary tax costs in restructuring.
