The clients who come to us for this service range from start-ups and family-run companies to larger medium-sized companies and listed stock companies. Our activities include organisational advice, e.g. for the founding and reorganisation of companies, and guidance on matters relating to company succession and the formation of joint ventures in Germany and abroad, as well as dispute settlements between shareholders. We also regularly represent our clients in special proceedings under corporate law such as rescission and annulment challenges concerning stock corporation law, and judicial review or approval proceedings in accordance with the Transformation Act (Umwandlungsgesetz).
