Corporate law

Investors from abroad wanting to set up a business in Germany face a number of legal challenges. In this context our law firm offers comprehensive legal advice to international clients. We will support you in establishing your own company in Germany by helping you to choose the appropriate legal form, to draw up contracts, company statutes and managing director contracts and to observe all necessary formalities.

Consulting is particularly - but not exclusively - targeted at non-profit organisations.

After your company has been registered in the commercial registry we will assist you in corporate governance. Beyond that, new decisions regarding business strategy might offer an opportunity to question the existing legal form or to change the status.

The same applies to changes in the management bodies (members/shareholders), company restructurings, liquidations, business successions or corporate disposals. In this connection we appreciate your concern that you want to be closely involved with and well informed about each process despite the geographical distance.

Disputes among the partners significantly affect the operational business of a company. We represent partners/shareholders from abroad in general meetings and shareholder disputes. Additionally we assert your rights of membership against management measures.

Moreover we advice international clients in legal matters with regard to sales and sales organisation. In this area, importance should be given to the choice of contractual agreement between the entrepreneur and commercial agents, official distributors, brokers etc. Franchising also offers interesting business opportunities to foreign investors. Based on our expertise in franchise law we advice our clients in setting up a franchise company in Germany.
