Association Law

Association Law

From a legal perspective, an association is an independent legal entity, which means that it can acquire rights and duties independent of its members. The relevant Associations Act (Vereinsgesetz) governs the mandatory internal organisational structure of an association, notification duties vis-à-vis the authorities and the responsibilities and liabilities of the bodies of the association (chairperson, board, treasurer).
We review existing statutes of associations in regard to compliance with statutory requirements, draft statutes for future associations, provide advice for the conduct of elections or votes in the association or in connection with the exclusion of members.
