What is the optimal legal form for my company? This question does not only concern start-ups, but also experienced entrepreneurs. Corporations and partnerships differ not only in liability issues, but also in formation and maintenance costs as well as publication obligations and taxation. Advantages and disadvantages must be considered in advance and weighed against each other.
The foundation of a company, however, does not only include the choice of the right legal form. A partnership agreement that reflects your individual wishes and ideas and provides you and your co-partners with the right instruments to resolve future conflicts is also crucial to your company’s success.
We advise shareholders, managing directors, board members and supervisory board members on all questions of company law, draft employment contracts and dismissals and assist you in the implementation of these measures in the commercial register. In addition, we support you in disputes with co-partners and in enforcing or defending liability claims against board members and managing directors.
Together with you, we plan possible transformations and restructurings as well as group agreements and support you in the negotiation and conclusion of strategic cooperation agreements, such as joint venture or M&A agreements. In certain cases, we also act as advisory boards and advise on the conduct of advisory board meetings.
We consult with your tax advisors at every step to ensure that you achieve the best possible result.
