Abstract

In this article I discuss the succession and inheritance law under Luxembroug law. First, I elaborate on the general principles. Then, I discuss intestate succession and succession by wills. I move on with issues arising out of private international law and tax law. To conclude, I give some ideas on ways to minimise succession problems where international elements are involved.

Keywords: Succesion law, tax law, Luxembourg law, intestate succession, wills, tax law, international private law
