Rural land and inheritance rights

Estate and succession planning for agricultural businesses is subject to the special provisions of Swiss law regarding rural land rights, which ensures that agricultural enterprises are retained and not destroyed due to fragmentation.

We particularly provide support in the following areas:

  • Measures related to rural land rights, in particular the division of residential property, agreement of rights of pre-emption and claims to profit shares
  • Acquisition, leasing and sale of agricultural businesses
  • Obtaining permits and representation to authorities
