Co-founder and Member of the Board
For more than two decades, Martin Behrens has been professionally involved with foundations and foundation law.
After studying law, he was first an assistant in international and Anglo-American law before passing the bar examination in 1992. His focuses are tax and conversion law, corporate and inheritance law and the law of succession in addition to foundation law.
He is a partner in the Freiburg office of Stilz Behrens & Partners and on the Board of DIRAG AG, a joint-stock company composed of attorneys at law and specializing in foundations.
Martin Behrens has founded a variety of foundations in the course of his career and is considered an expert on the so-called fiduciary foundation in particular.
As a father with a daughter and a son, he knows how important it is for children and adolescents is to identify their own strengths, but also their weaknesses in good time. Within the scope of his own foundation, he would therefore like to promote and support this approach in a targeted manner.
Since 2013, along with Thomas Falkenstein, he has been the chairman of the FollowYourTalent Foundation, a fiduciary foundation based in Freiburg in Breisgau.
