Why we do what we do.

Heir Search.

From locating heirs, procuring documents, creating a genealogical tree, translating foreign-language documents, to settling and paying out the inheritance, we cover the entire process surrounding a matter of inheritance professionally and in many countries.


In Germany, if the probate court is not able to find an heir apparent in a case of an open estate, the state is appointed as heir. We believe that this should remain the exception. We have made it our responsibility to help rightful heirs to their inheritance.


Heir search is a long process in which many pieces of a puzzle have to be brought together. With great passion and competence, we pursue the work in archives, the search for heirs as well as the bureaucratic effort with courts and notaries.
