The advisory practice in the area of corporate law focuses on the law of partnerships and limited companies, in particular, stock companies, partnerships limited by shares, and the Societas Europaea (SE). Issues involving the structuring of a company’s legal relationships play a major role, as these serve both to give effect to the desires and expectations of the parties involved to the extent permitted by statute and to avoid possible future conflicts. One important aspect in this regard is selection of the company form best suited to the planned purpose.
Great attention is also dedicated to advising the company’s owners and board members about their rights and obligations, as well as to providing advice in advance of possible litigation in the event of conflicts between owners.
Where the sale or acquisition of a company is planned, as with other complex transactions, advice is provided to the responsible company bodies (meeting of the members/
shareholders, supervisory board, advisory board), which is independent of direct transactional advice.
