The legal relationships between companies and shareholders are deemed to be one of the most confrontational legal relationships. On the one hand, the interests of the shareholders are directed together with the company aims. On the other hand, differing individual interests are by all means pursued.

In order to avoid this conflict of interest, we provide advice already with the selection of the correct legal form and the drafting of the articles of association as well as with company transactions and corporate reorganisations, just to name a few examples.

In this respect, an exact knowledge of commercial law and corporate law provisions is indispensible, linked with a profound knowledge of the tax laws. This applies exactly for example for profit distribution agreements as well as for the structure of pension commitments or bonuses.

Due to the fact that our specialists in corporate law are simultaneously certified tax law specialists or tax advisers, the tax law protection of corporate law structures is self-evident for us.
