Hoerner Bank – a powerful partner

Did you know that our company can be traced back to before 1849? Or that the founder was in fact a notary and probate judge in Württemberg?

When the German Civil Code [BGB] came into force in 1900, our company had already been operating as an heir research firm for several decades. And since then we have completed heir research successfully for generations of judicial estate administrators, evolving as a powerful partner in this field for voluntary jurisdiction.

And today our team still mostly comprises fully trained lawyers, qualified judicial officers and Württ. Notariatsassessors (legal experts qualified to act as a probate judge in estate matters in Baden-Württemberg). We see ourselves as a partner to the judiciary and wish to play our part in ensuring that unknown heirs are assisted in asserting their inheritance rights as guaranteed in the German constitution.

We are happy to provide support with heir research or procuring certificates both domestically and abroad. Of course our expert team is also available to assist with execution of wills within the scope of Section 2200 German Civil Code [BGB] or can connect you with a professional judicial estate administrator, as required.
