Dual Citizenship, Inheritance Law, Trademark Law - citizenship

You are a Canadian/American citizen, but had previously the German citizenship, or are of German descent and would like to reacquire the German citizenship by way of repatriation without forfeiting your current citizenship. However, you hesitate because you are aware of the fact that this step would automatically result in the loss of your German citizenship, which you are not willing to give up due to existing ties to Germany.

Also, for many years we have successfully teamed up with a German speaking Canadian tax firm here in Vancouver, a company that has intimate knowledge of German tax law.

As soon as a foreign jurisdiction is involved in an estate matter, the future testator and his or her beneficiaries are confronted with a complex set of problems.
