What drives us
For us, searching for an heir is much more than a question of inheritance. It’s also a question of law, fairness, and takes into account the human dimension and draws on our understanding of the multitude of transformations society is undergoing.
This is why we’ll take on any case, regardless of the amount of assets or the difficulties involved in our genealogical research.
We’re ready to go the extra distance to find an heir and defend his or her rights. Because every time ADD Associés teams find an heir, a page of family history is rewritten, and a missing relative can reclaim his or her place in it.
