Corporate law
Our advice in corporate law includes, inter alia, the formation of all common types of companies (GmbH, UG (limited liability), Aktiengesellschaft, OHG, GmbH und Co. KG, SE), the drafting of all formation documents (e.g. articles of association/bylaws, rules of procedure, service agreement managing director/board of directors), acquisition/disposal of participations and companies (mergers&Acquisitions), assistance in shareholder changes, restructuring, conflict resolution (out of court and in court as well as in arbitration proceedings) in the event of disputes of shareholders or managing directors and liquidation of companies.
In commercial law, we advise companies in their day-to-day operations on all issues of legal relevance. It is not uncommon for us to assume the function of an external legal department and to be the direct contact for purchasing and sales. In doing so, we provide support in questions of contract drafting, in the examination, evaluation and avoidance of legal and commercial risks and, of course, also in the defense or enforcement of rights and claims. Through our international network, we are also able to provide targeted and comprehensive advice on cross-border issues.

In the field of distribution law, we advise companies on the establishment and optimization of distribution structures and provide support in the restructuring, expansion and new construction of distribution and sales channels, both offline and online (e-commerce).
In addition to the common distribution systems (commercial agents, franchises, licensees, specialized and authorized dealers, etc.), we focus in particular on distribution antitrust law and its restrictions.

We assist our clients in the context of national and international acquisitions and mergers. We offer legal and technical support in upstream due diligences, handling of the mostly virtual data rooms as well as negotiation and conclusion of all necessary contracts, such as letters of intent, non-disclosure agreements, purchase agreements, participation agreements. Together with tax advisors, auditors and foreign law firms from our network or the environment of our clients, we offer legal support
from the idea to the execution.
In more and more sectors of the economy, intellectual property is the basis of corporate success. The protection of intellectual property is therefore of fundamental importance. Our advice in intellectual property law covers the entire field of intellectual property (trademark, patent, utility model, design and competition law). In particular, we support our clients in the establishment and protection as well as the exploitation and enforcement of intangible property rights.
We advise our clients in all matters relating to real estate. In particular, we provide support in the construction, acquisition and sale of real estate, real estate management and real estate leasing.
Our range of consulting services is aimed at clients with large real estate portfolios as well as clients with individual properties.
Our activities in the field of real estate acquisition include assisting in contract negotiations, conducting due diligence and drafting contracts.
In the field of commercial tenancy law, we review and draft tailor-made commercial tenancy agreements, in particular taking into account increasingly far-reaching legal restrictions on form tenancy agreements, and provide support in contract negotiations, terminations or questions in the case of ongoing tenancy, such as maintenance, defect rights, operating cost accounting, structural measures or protection against competition.
Contracts are our trade. Our contract drafting (also international and multilingual) covers, among other things, contracts under company law, such as articles of association, rules of procedure for the board of directors/management, company contracts, investment contracts, investor contracts, purchase and assignment contracts for investments, framework contracts for purchasing and purchasing conditions (general terms and conditions), framework contracts for sales and sales conditions (general terms and conditions), contracts for the protection of confidential information and business secrets (non-disclosure agreements), commercial rental and lease contracts for premises, equipment, facilities and operations.
