Re: Recommendation for English speaking lawyer

Will you claim Heimatrecht/"droit national"?
Means that the inheritance rules and law of your country of citizenship should apply instead of Swiss rules. This can only be done if your are not a Swiss citizen.
And if yes what jurisdiction would you claim?

As we don't "understand" your post it emphasises even more strongly why we need an English speaking layer!
