Law of Unresolved Property Issues

Property comes in many different sizes; its value may be short-lived or long-term. And, as a rule, it should reflect what a person has earned through his labours.

The law of unresolved property issues covers claims to restitution of property or compensation on the part of the victims of National Socialism and the legal problems arising from the division of Germany and its reunification. 

We have wide-ranging experience in the following areas:

  • restitution of works of art and real estate lost due to National Socialist persecution
  • tracing lost assets
  • securing property rights and their equivalents
  • representing users and owners of real property known in the former German Democratic Republic as dacha weekend retreats

Whenever necessary, we co-operate cross-border with reliable, experienced colleagues with a proven track record and other experienced partners.
