Establishing and Structuring of Legal Entities

We provide a broad range of legal advice regarding all corporate matters: choice of an adequate and advantageous legal form for a certain business, the establishment or restructuring of legal entities as well as the liquidation process. We draft Articles of Association for incorporated entities and partnerships and provide legal advice regarding the admission of new shareholders. We structure and execute acquisitions either as asset or as share deals. Furthermore we advise foreign investors who intend to establish a branch or a subsidiary company in Germany. In addition we provide comprehensive legal and tax services for all business activities in Germany. Due to our fiscal expertise we can offer optimized tax solutions under one roof. This is especially valuable in the field of German corporate law, because no other field of law is connected as closely to the tax and accounting laws.

In addition we are able to link the legal aspects between corporate law and labor law while drafting employment contracts for staff or executives.

We are available as competent partners for all kinds of questions that might rise up while doing business in Germany, for example financing, annual financial statements or profit distribution. In case of any disputes between shareholders we offer mediation services. If necessary we will enforce your claims effectively in court and arbitration proceedings.

In situations of tension or crisis we will support you by developing effective backup plans. In the unlikely event of insolvency we will also support managing directors and shareholders in order to develop new concepts to overcome these difficulties.
