Join us at our first McDermott Private Client Forum in Munich on Thursday, 28 November 2019.

With this series of events, we want to create a forum for exchanging ideas on the topics of wealth, succession, inheritance and tax law.

Our speakers, Dr. Henning Schwarz of Notariat Schervier + Schwarz and Dr. Nils Wighardt of McDermott Will & Emery will give insights on European inheritance law, will drafting and tax consequences followed by an opportunity for discussion.
