Inheritance Law

Inheritance law is a complex legal domain that governs the distribution of property and rights after the death of a person. During this emotionally charged period, it is very important to be familiar with the basic principles of inheritance law and seek the expertise of a specialized inheritance lawyer. Inheritances and estates often involve disagreements or conflicts that can run high. Gimbrere Legal’s inheritance lawyers in Amsterdam, Breda and The Hague translate emotional issues concerning inheritance law into legal options.

What is inheritance law?

Inheritance law is the legal framework that determines how a deceased person’s estate is distributed. This estate includes not only assets, but also debts and other financial interests. Inheritance law determines who the heirs are and what portion of the estate belongs to them. It is a complex set of rules and regulations that provides the basis for fair and equitable distribution.


A will is a key document in inheritance matters. It allows a person to record specific wishes regarding the estate. Drafting a well thought out will is very important to avoid potential disputes between heirs.

Inheritance tax and the estate

Dividing an estate also involves inheritance tax. It is essential to be aware of the tax aspects of inheritance law, both for the estate giver and the heirs. Gimbrere Legal’s inheritance lawyers in Amsterdam, Breda and The Hague have tax expertise and will be happy to provide you with detailed information on inheritance tax and inheritance law.

International inheritance law

Inheritance law is becoming increasingly complex. Especially now that there are more composite families and more official and unofficial forms of cohabitation. In addition, there is increasing internationalization resulting in heirs having to deal with a foreign will more often. Understanding international inheritance law is critical to overseeing the distribution of an estate with international aspects.
