Gesellschaften können im weitesten Sinne unterschieden werden in Personengesellschaften und Körperschaften. Zu den Personengesellschaften gehören die stille Gesellschaft, die Kommanditgesellschaft (KG), die offene Handelsgesellschaft (oHG), die BGB-Gesellschaft und die Partnerschaftsgesellschaft. Auf den ersten Blick gestaltet sich die Nachfolge in einer dieser Personengesellschaften mühelos, da sowohl HGB, als auch BGB eine regelmäßige Rechtsfolge im Todesfall eines Gesellschafters vorsehen. Dessen ungeachtet können die Gesellschafter einer Personengesellschaft im Gesellschaftsvertrag abweichende Regelungen festlegen. Die Erbfolge gestaltet sich jedoch problematisch, wenn der Erblasser mehrere Erben hinterlässt. Dann kollidieren Erb- und Gesellschaftsrecht, da im Erbrecht das Prinzip der Gesamtrechtsnachfolge verankert ist2, im Gesellschaftsrecht jedoch die persönliche Verbundenheit der Gesellschafter mit der Gesellschaft im Vordergrund steht. Dieser Konflikt ist auch nach der Handelsrechtsreform ungelöst geblieben3.
Unproblematisch dagegen gestaltet sich die Nachfolge bei Anteilen an einer Kapitalgesellschaft. Da hier die persönliche Verbundenheit der Gesellschafter mit der Gesellschaft nicht gegeben ist, erfolgt die erbrechtliche Unternehmensnachfolge allein nach dem Erbrecht. Um Klarheit über die Nachfolge in Personengesellschaften bei Tod eines Gesellschafters zu erlangen und die dabei auftretenden Schwierigkeiten zu überschauen, werden im Folgenden zunächst die gesetzlichen Rechtsfolgen dargestellt.
