, 16 May 2019 – 17 May 2019
(simultaneous interpretation)
Event number:

Areas of law:


The conference will address practical issues when planning cross-border successions, in particular:
  • The interplay of succession law and (matrimonial) property law.
    Knowledge about the applicable property regime is indispensable in case of death or when drafting a will. Consequently, this conference will highlight the crossover between the EU Succession Regulation and the new regime on (matrimonial) property for international couples which will become applicable in January 2019.
  • Recent case law.
    After nearly four years of practical experience with the EU Succession Regulation, recent (CJEU) case law and its implications for legal practice will be presented.
  • Digital legacy.
    What happens to your social media accounts when you die? The conference will address the issues of digital inheritance when drafting a last will and post mortem.
  • Inheritance tax.
    Participants will discuss tax problems in cross-border inheritance cases including measures to avoid double taxation.

Who should attend?

Lawyers in private practice and notaries involved in succession planning, tax lawyers, judges, ministry officials and academics.
