German to English translations [PRO] Law/Patents - Law: Contract(s) / Wills/Inheritance
German term or phrase:Stammteile
From a Contract of Inheritance. "Als Ersatzerben bestimmen wir die ehelichen Abkömmlinge des Erben zu gleichen Stammteilen."
Explanation: substitute heirs will be the legal descendants of the heir that is entitled to the inheritance under the principle of representation per stirpes = Erbfolge nach Stämmen (oder Parentelen) = succession per stirpes ( or by stocks)
so persons equal in degree of relationship under this principle inherit in equal shares
