Corporate law deals with private associations of persons, which are established by legal transaction in order to achieve a specific purpose.
With regard to the various legal forms of companies, a distinction is made primarily between the partnerships (GbR, OHG, EWIV, KG and partnership companies) and the corporations (GmbH, eG, SE, SCE, British Limited and AG). The registered associations and foundations take a special position. In addition, there are hybrid forms that consist of several companies (corporations and partnerships). A corporation / foundation acts as the general partner of a partnership / KGaA. The content of corporate law is also group law, which deals with affiliated companies, as well as the transformational transformation right.
Our task in corporate law is, taking into account the purpose of your company, to select the best possible legal form for you and your company from a tax and liability-minimizing point of view and to implement this legally.
Our goal of holistic consulting for entrepreneurs is to comprehensively comprehend the legal issues surrounding the company and to develop a long-term, yet cost-effective solution.
Frequently to be solved problems arise in particular in connection with:
Start-ups, transfers, conversions,
Succession arrangements among the living or the dead,
Crisis and insolvency of society,
Organ liability of the managing director or executive committee,
Financing and securing liquidity.
Often, shareholder disputes or disputes between the shareholders and the company representatives (managing directors / board members) have a potentially threatening effect on the situation in the company. We see our task in the fastest possible mediation or decision of such disputes, in order to ensure the continuation of undisturbed business operations.
Commercial law includes the entirety of all legal norms for merchants.
This includes the law of the commercial status (in particular law of commercial agents, brokers and authorized dealers), the law of commercial transactions (current account agreements, commercial purchase, commission, freight and forwarding transactions) and international sales law.
In simple terms, commercial law fully covers the B2B sector in legal terms and provides for numerous special regulations in comparison to general civil law.
As we subsume the freight and freight forwarding business under transport and forwarding law in our internal operational practice, the focus of our commercial law department is on commercial agent law, in particular on the law of insurance intermediaries and brokers, as well as on commission agreements and international sales law.
