We advise publicly listed and private companies on preparing and conducting their general and shareholder meetings, on industrial group company matters, e.g. mergers, spin-offs and hive-downs or on upcoming conversions of legal form (e.g. into a European stock corporation, SE) and on all corporate law matters related to the management boards, managing directors, supervisory and administrative boards (corporate governance).
Another core practice area is advice on public takeovers with subsequent corporate structural measures (taking private), such as the conclusion of domination and profit and loss transfer agreements or the execution of squeeze-outs.
Our lawyers also represent companies, shareholders, members of management boards, managing directors, members of supervisory and administrative boards in all kinds of corporate litigation, such as recissory actions and invalidity lawsuits against resolutions of general and shareholder meetings, release proceedings and administrative decision procedures, as well as claims for damages against members of corporate bodies.
We also prepare opinions on complex corporate law matters and comprehensively advise companies on compliance issues.
