It is important to evaluate the outcome of your final wishes and goals under both Swiss and foreign laws. For example issues like hereditary protected reserve, tax provisions, darting a will, and deciding whether to transfer assets to a foundation or to a trust, one should compare the legal consequences under Swiss law and foreign law.
Other legal issues to consider when planning your estate are: choice of law, if it is necessary to choose a foreign law (profession juris), or if an advance of inheritance must be reported to the estate, etc.
It is vital to seek advice and counsel from an attorney who has an excellent knowledge of civil, private international law, and tax law in drafting wills and succession contracts especially when it comes to international context.
