Furthermore, the law firm’s consulting services focuse on the issue of company succession and on the rendering of legal advice with regard to succession planning of family owned companies.
In case of a purchase or sale of companies or of shareholdings I support you with competent legal advice and conduct of negotiations, in particular with regard to

  • the structuring of the transaction (asset deal/ share deal) as well as post-closing implementation steps
  • the preparation, organization and carrying out of the legal due diligence examination of the company including the preparation of a due diligence report

The due diligence report outlines – among others – the corporate matters and ownership relationships of the company as well as contractual and labour law relationships and sets forth the legal risks of the envisaged transaction as well as recommendations for further steps. 

  • Preparation and negotiation of all necessary documents such as
    • confidentiality agreement
    • letter of intent summarizing the economic parameters
    • purchase and transfer agreement including contractually agreed guaranteed, provisions relating to the purchase price and payment etc.
    • necessary shareholders‘ agreements regulating the relationship of a purchaser/ investor to possible other shareholders
    • necessary resolutions as well amendment of the articles of association, the internal rules of procedure etc.
