You have found the right partner or partners for your company? Do you also have the appropriate legal structures and articles of association for your company? What applies in the event of a dispute, the admission of new shareholders, or the transfer/sale of the company?

Corporate law deals with the regulations that govern entrepreneurial cooperation in partnerships, such as the partnership under civil law (GbR or BGB-Gesellschaft), the partnership company (Partnerschaftsgesellschaft), the OHG and KG o legal entities such as a limited liability company (GmbH) or a stock corporation (AG). In interaction with the respective articles of association, it is often very formal issues that determine corporate law, for example in the preparation and execution of shareholders' meetings. We provide advice in this regard and ensure the enforcement of shareholder rights and claims before German courts. We also advise on questions of corporate succession, the sale of companies or company shares and on restructuring and crisis situations.

FAMILY ENTERPRISES

More than 90 % of German companies are family-owned. Our activities focus on the establishment of inheritance law regulations by means of internal or external company succession. Frankly speaking: often, the only thing that helps is experience, mental strength, and the necessary calmness and composure with which we – as externals – can grasp complex issues and break them down to the essential even in tense situations.
