An established medium-sized company requires different legal advice than a young start-up and both need different legal advice than a venture capital investor.
In order to get the best advice possible, companies and investors of every size and structure need more than purely legal advice. They also need economic expertise and the ability of their advisors to analyse and create structures.

Restructuring and reorganisation
Companies are continuously subject to change. New business areas emerge and new markets open. Crises also force companies to adjust to new circumstances and to develop new structures.
We help your company to master the challenges of change – in all respects.
The compliance with legal requirements and internal guidelines is a major challenge to companies. For this reason and within the framework of legal possibilities, internal guidelines should be adjusted individually to the reality of each company.
We assist you in all areas to establish internal guidelines. We support you with the implementation of compliance guidelines. Moreover, we help you deal with internal guidelines.
Formation of Companies
The requirements relating to the legal form of a company are very different depending on the shareholder structure, industry or product. Once the right legal form is found, the elaboration of the articles of association tailored to your individual situation (industry, financing needs, etc.) is of considerable importance for every formation of company.
Together with your tax advisors, we find the company form suitable for your situation and support you in formulating your articles of association. We offer start-ups special advising concepts, which take account of the great need for advice and the limited budget in the initial phase.
Corporate financing is another key aspect of our legal economic advice – both in connection with the formation of enterprises and in the subsequent process.
We advise companies of all industries and investors in relation to issues concerning debt and equity financing – starting from the seed financing up to stock market flotation. A focus lies on the advice of technology-oriented companies with regard to venture capital and private equity financing. Furthermore, our long-standing cooperation with investors and business angels permits us to support companies with the capital procurement.
Mergers and Acquisitions
Mergers, corporate acquisitions, business transfers, takeovers or business co-operations are legally complex and often economically risky. Professional assistance of such transactions and the related operational changes is indispensable.
We advise you in all phases of a transaction – starting from due diligence up to post-merger processes. In doing so, our special expertise in the field of technology and labour law gives us the required “holistic view”.
