In many respects, foundations are a special, unique form of organisation. Ignorance of regulations can lead to incorrect decisions and sometimes also to liability for damages. We are regularly engaged to handle all possible matters relating to foundations, from their formation onwards. When a foundation has been formed, issues arise from time to time, for example adaptation of the object, permutation in other respects, types of contribution, conditions for retaining tax benefits and board responsibility. We also help foundations with their internal management and their contacts with supervisory authorities and the Swedish Legal, Financial and Administrative Services Agency.

We regularly assist our clients with the following:

  • Formation of foundations
  • Adaptation of foundations’ objects
  • Amendment of foundations’ statutes
  • Assistance with application for permutation
  • Appointment and dismissal of members
  • Construction of foundations’ regulations
  • Board responsibility
  • Assistance in legal disputes
  • Forms of contributions
  • Lectures and customised training
