M&A / Corporate Law

The economic system demands that complex relationships be controlled to increase individual profit. Moreover, those relationships have long ceased being limited to national territories, but have to be controlled across all of Europe as well as globally. You may rightly demand of your advisors that they give you unlimited support in this, whether you are an entrepreneur, a partner, a director, a manager, a supervisory board member or a member of an advisory committee. We will give you comprehensive advice on all matters relating to national and international company law, both in relation to organization and legal disputes. Together with our specialists in the fields of capital market law, intellectual property protection, antitrust law, tax law and insolvency law, we represent your interests in a targeted and sustained manner in the long term. This way, we create space to act and organize, which will give you optimum support in achieving your goals as an entrepreneur.

Mergers & Acquisitions, Private Equity
