We also gladly take care of so-called corporate housekeeping for clients, i.e., handling corporate law and contract law issues as they arise at a company. We assist with developing corporate structures in the form of articles and bylaws, rules and procedures, and intercompany agreements for corporate groups, etc. Because our expertise also includes tax and employment law, we are able to provide legal advice “from a single source” in particular for restructurings.
We assist shareholders’ meetings as well as publicly traded and privately held stock corporations with preparing and holding annual shareholders’ meetings. Following the meeting, we represent clients in any shareholder contests and valuation proceedings.
In addition, we advise our clients on all legal matters related to the management board, management, supervisory board or executive board (corporate governance). Companies, board members, managing directors and supervisory board members alike rely on our services when liability issues arise.
We also assist corporations with preparing and implementing capitalization measures as well as structural measures under corporate law and reorganization law (control and profit transfer agreements, squeeze-outs, merger, spin-offs, hive-offs, changes in corporate form – including reorganization into a European stock corporation (SE)). In connection with reorganizations, our clients benefit from our tax law expertise and experience.
We will help you introduce or expand your compliance organization. We will also support and advise you in cases of non-compliance, in order to resolve all related corporate, liability and employment law issues the best way possible.
