Learn more about us...

Petersen estate administration - that's lawyers Nikolaus Petersen and Jens Petersen and three committed and experienced employees: Katrin Wolf, Belinda Bloch and Angéle Moutchoyan.

3rd generation lawyers, estate settlement since 1970:  tradition and experience which pay off for you. We can look back on hundreds of cases and lawsuits which were settled to the satisfaction of the heirs.

Trustworthy partners: As professional estate administrators we are regularly appointed as estate administrators or will executors by the district courts of the Rhein-Main area. Briefs range from simply securing the estate to executing complex wills in the corporate sector or handling large and problematic property holdings.

We are also being appointed with increasing frequency by charitable organisations, especially when the circumstances are complicated or where there is a community of co-heirs.

We are up-to-date: we offer you knowledge which is constantly updated by means of further training courses in estate and inheritance law as well as adjacent legal fields, above all from the world of property law, company law and international inheritance law.

Our strength lies in our wide-ranging knowledge for estate settlement entails contact with all legal fields - we have dealt with patent infringements, the sale of a hot-air balloon, fraudulent pseudo-lawyers, extortionate debt recovery agencies, almost indelible "old rights" from the time before the war, and many more such examples.

How do we work?

Our primary goal of course is to satisfy you as our client. Experience teaches us that our clients appreciate first and foremost a transparent and structured procedure which delivers a good financial result in as short a time as possible.

  • Structured: we bring order to the chaos, we tackle things systematically.
  • Efficient: we don't lose our focus, we tick off the items on our list.
  • Humane: we don't just look at numbers but also at what lies behind them.
  • Reasonable: we weigh things up - sometimes it is smarter to back down as it pays off at the end of the day.

Of course we also offer legal advice and legal representation in all matters concerning inheritance and estate law: Please visit our Petersen - Lawyers website.
