COMMERCIAL AND CORPORATE LAW

In commercial and corporate law, we advise and represent commercial and municipal entities and companies in the social and health care industry and their respective shareholders.

We provide consulting services with respect to business formation, restructuring and succession, including privatisation and re-municipalisation in the municipal sector. We assist companies and their executive bodies in any and all matters of liability law. We provide advice regarding business acquisitions and transfers, assist with investigations of the public prosecutor’s office, the preparation and execution of shareholder meetings and shareholder disputes, and represent our clients in court and arbitration proceedings. We furthermore assist our clients with the increasingly important implementation of efficient compliance systems, and offer guidance to managing directors and executive boards to help them find the correct and legally irreproachable path in the minefield of statutory requirements and instructions from the supervisory board and the shareholders.

In commercial law, we provide assistance with the drafting and legally watertight wording of contracts (such as commercial agency, supply, construction or license agreements) both in national and international legal transactions.
