Civil & Family Law

We provide advice on the full range of civil law matters that arise in everyday life, such as financial loans, the sale, purchase and leasing of real estate, disputes with neighbours and compensation claims.

We also handle family law matters, including spousal relations (divorce, compensation for adultery, child support, alimony and property division), parent-child relations (custody rights and adoption), inheritance (division of assets, reduction of benefits and renunciation of inheritance), the preparation and probate of wills, guardianship and administration, and the management of assets.

As our lawyers have significant experience in civil and family law, we assign the most appropriate lawyer to each case and exert our full effort towards addressing our client’s concerns and finding the best resolution to the case.
