Corporate Law

The Right Decisions for Business Success

Corporate law is a core area of commercial law. The framework conditions for long-term business success are decisively characterized by effective decisions of corporate law.

Many decisions must be made already when a company is founded. It is about developing economically sensible solutions, starting with the choice of the legal form, the structure and representation of the company and also including tax and financing alternatives.

For existing companies, relevant issues include especially changes in the shareholder structure/management, capital increase and capital reduction; acquisition and sale of companies; liability risks of shareholders and executive officers, as well as the liquidation of the company are relevant topics.

Besides stock corporations (GmbH [German company with limited liability), AG [German stock corporation], Limited) and partnerships (in particular GmbH & Co. KG [German limited partnership with a limited liability company as general partner], GbR [partnership under the German Civil Code], silent participation), we advise shareholders, managing directors, management board and supervisory board members on general legal questions, and in disputes in and out of court.

You have the bundled know-how of our highly specialized team of lawyers, tax advisers and data protection experts at your disposal to get the optimal interdisciplinary advice that is oriented on the concrete individual case.
