Family Businesses

Schindler Attorneys’ Family Business Practice accompanies family businesses and their entrepreneurial families. The practice group provides support in structuring and implementing a succession plan. Furthermore, we assist family businesses in the establishment and integration of a family business governance. In conflict situations we are at your disposal as mediators.

Succession Planning

A successful passing over to the next generation or even the implementation of an external management is of crucial importance for all family businesses. By structuring and implementing a succession plan we consider personal, legal, economic and tax implications as well as the implementation of the family and company strategy.

Family Business Governance

When the family starts to communicate about issues of its strategy regarding the business, the formal entrepreneurial family is created. We support entrepreneurial families to establish their own family strategy with regards to their family business.

For this purpose, we do not only act as lawyers, but also use a systemic approach and act as the facilitator of a constructive and thus value-creating dialogue within the family.


Conflict management for us means making conflicts discussable. We offer you support through mediation in a business context such as intra-company conflicts, shareholder disputes as well as conflicts in the context of succession planning.
