Our law firm provides comprehensive legal services and advice in relation to the trusts. Such legal services involve foundation of a trust and its subsequent administration, as well as all other related consultancy and advisory services related to the trusts.
What is a trust?
A trust is a set of property without legal personality that the founder has allocated from his exclusive assets and has handed it over to the trustee. Such allocated assets thus cease to be owned by the founder of the trust or by the person who puts it in, but becomes anonymous (so-called independent) property. During the existence of the trust, the ownership rights to the assets in the trust are exercised by the trustee, whose main task is to properly administer these assets.
The main principle of the trust is therefore management of the assets in the trust by the trustee in order to achieve the purpose of the trust.
For what purpose can a trust be established?
The trust can be set up for various purposes, whether public or private.
It can be used in particular as:
• an instrument to protect family or business assets (e.g. protection of family assets in the case of a big family, unwanted heirs,
to secure succession in business, etc.)
• the safe and stable structuring of the future transfer of property to the family, etc.
What to do if you want to establish a trust?
First of all, it is essential to arrange a personal meeting with us in order for us to explain to you in detail the conditions for the establishment of the trust. During such meeting we will find out whether and what trust is suitable for you.
Consequently, if you agree to establish a trust, we will prepare the necessary trust documents for you. After your approval of such trust documents, we will set up a meeting with a notary who will (i) make a notarial deed on the founding of the trust and then (ii) register the trust into the Trust Registry. Once the trust has been registered it will legally come into existence.
Through cooperation with attorneys associated in EUROJURIS INTERNATIONAL (international association of middle sized law firms that unites attorneys from more than 40 countries all over the world and of which the Law firm was a member for several years - for more information please see www.eurojuris.net), the law firm Bulinský & Vávra, advokátní kancelář, s.r.o. is able to secure legal service abroad and to guarantee the quality and price of provided legal service to be in accordance with EUROJURIS INTERNATIONAL rules.
The Law firm is also a member of the Association of German Attorneys known as VERBAND DEUTSCHER ANWÄLTE e.V. (www.Verband-Deutscher-Anwaelte.de) where Mgr. Vávra acts as the Executive member.
Apart from the cooperation with attorneys in other countries through the above mentioned associations, the associates of the Law Firm also, when handling the clients’ matters abroad, closely cooperate with local attorneys. Such cooperation is based on a long term work and personal relationships.
Since March 2013 the Law Firm has a branch office located in Vienna. The Vienna office is led by Mgr. Vávra who provides here - at least 1x in 14 days - legal services to Czech clients in need of legal assistance in Austria (closely cooperating with the law firm pallas, coop-recht) and to Austrian clients seeking legal aid in the Czech Republic. However the main seat and focus of activities of Mgr. Vávra still remains in Brno.
The Vienna branch office provides legal services to Czech entities in Austria, with a main focus on (i) recovery of receivables (application for European order for payment, subsequent enforcement of claims, insolvency proceedings applications etc.), (ii) establishment of business corporations or branches of Czech companies in Austria, (iii) legal representation in civil and criminal cases (including representation of victims in criminal cases) in Austrian courts, (iv) drafting and commenting on real estate purchase agreements and other agreements under Austrian law and (v) employment law including issues in connection with the posting of workers etc.
