The highly developed legal dogmatics in the field of corporate law makes it a particularly challenging area of legal practice. Our objective is to develop tailored solutions which realise the entrepreneurial aims of the individual client, whilst satisfying the stringent legal requirements.
We advise German and foreign companies, shareholders and active investors in all aspects of corporate law and corporate governance. Our spectrum of advice includes the preparation of general and shareholder meetings, the implementation of measures relating to a company’s share capital or the legal transformation of entities, the resolving of insolvency law issues, as well the handling of legal matters relating to groups of affiliated companies or matters falling under takeover law. We advise management boards, supervisory boards and managing directors on matters relating to their executive functions and obligations, and advise on the legal safeguarding of their corporate decisions. Furthermore, we also provide legal assistance to managers within the scope of concluding service agreements and in the event of liability issues.
Another important focus of our practice is the advice offered to family-owned enterprises and family businesses, for example within the scope of restructuring their company portfolio, succession planning or disputes on the level of the shareholders.
Active investors also seek the benefit of our stock market and litigation expertise within the scope of exerting their influence on the management in an expedient and effective manner. Our lawyers have specialist know-how in the area of international corporate law and the legal transformation of entities on an international level, allowing us to develop optimal cross-border solutions for our clients. Our law firm has a long tradition of outstanding work in the legal area of international corporate law, considered particularly difficult among lawyers; several of our litigation lawyers hold relevant professorships and teaching posts at well-known universities.
We have considerable experience in resolving disputes in corporate matters, both before the courts of law and the courts of arbitration. We are committed and successful in representing our client companies and shareholders within the scope of shareholder disputes, rescission proceedings and administrative review proceedings, as well as in cases involving management liability. Our unusually broad experience in the area of litigation is particularly beneficial to our clients.
