Oppenhoff NextGen Academy

The desire to have your offspring take over the family business often becomes apparent at an early stage. At best, the family wishes to retain values created and successes achieved for many generations to come. At the same time, providing your successor - whether as an active manager or a supervising shareholder - with the necessary knowledge and skills to succeed without you assuming a lecturing role is a constant balancing act.

With our individually tailored Oppenhoff NextGen Academy, we support you in making the next generation fit for company succession. We provide you with important legal and non-legal know-how to face the upcoming challenges and for a successful start. As a full-service commercial law firm, we provide holistic advice in all the required areas, across the board of topics and industries.

Well-informed thanks to our network partners

We put together the right topics for you - modular, tailored to you and your company. To provide you with a comprehensive programme, we draw on our numerous network partners who are leaders in their industry. Their fields of expertise include communication, security, science, banking, art and coaching. We can, of course, also involve your family office, if you wish.

Individually prepared

When selecting the Academy topics, you determine the focus. We are also happy to include special topics on request. All tutorials can be designed in reference to a different country, if required. Our independent, international network is at your disposal for this purpose.

We are by your side

We would be pleased to stay in contact with you after you have completed the Academy. We provide participants with an experienced lawyer to guide them. If you wish, this lawyer can be available to the future successor for a period of one year as a sparring partner for legal issues.

Please feel free to contact us without any commitment!
