Company law and corporate contract law are another focus and, in detail, consist of the following:

  • incorporating companies with limited liability [GmbH] and joint-stock companies [AG]
  • establishing of branches of foreign companies
  • contracts on implementation of assignments of shares in limited liability companies
  • drafting articles of association / amendments to existing articles of association
  • legal opinions on company law
  • transformations
  • management buy-out consulting
  • due diligence reviews (tax and legal)
  • corporate litigation
  • shareholder agreements
  • advising corporate bodies (executive boards, managing directors of limited liability companies, supervisory boards)
  • preparing and providing support in shareholders’ meetings
  • company law advice and representation in Business Register cases

In addition, we have expertise in advising on and implementing business succession. This topic, which is highly sensitive in practice, combines company law aspects with complex questions of the law of succession and often sensitive contract law drafting problems (for instance in the composition regulations and compensation regulations among the legal successors).
