BWG addresses all issues which families may be confronted with, including with regard to their international dimension and societal changes. We operate both upstream, to shed light and provide guidance, and at times of crisis to overcome it.
Decades of building up an estate, decades of deconstruction of family relationships, and tight timing due to taxation to settle an inheritance. An impossible equation?
Divorce and other separations
We are committed to helping our clients come out of the crises they are going through, whether temporary or permanent, on top.
Protection / Dependence
We assist families affected by the vulnerability of one of their own, whether it is related to belonging to a minority, to a temporary or permanent disability, or to ageing.
We provide daily assistance to parents, separated or not, grandparents, in-laws and any third party connected with children.
The firm was built on the idea of dealing with family issues with the same technicality and rigour as that of a business firm. This approach is particularly crucial when it comes to dealing with all types of patrimonial issues, especially when they are complex and involve high stakes.
A family law lawyer is all too often a crisis and litigation professional, yet we are also counsellors, capable of shedding light on families' choices throughout their lives, much like a family doctor does on health matters.
Because we specialise in family conflicts, we never fuel them.
New family relationships
As our society, morals and science have evolved, families have replaced the traditional concept of the family: single-parent families, homoparental families, stepfamilies, families affected by accidents.
Globalisation has had a profound impact on family law, particularly in cases of expatriation, mixed marriages, anticipating inheritance when assets are split up in several countries or filiation when the link is created abroad. And yet, families are still subject to the greatest cultural, religious and legislative differences.
