Due Diligence

The term "due diligence" coming from Anglo-American area is used today as a rule to designate the checking of a company in the context of company acquisition. The legal due diligence comprises the legal issues of the company to be acquired, either by way of a share deal or asset deal. We perform the due diligence checking in teams by engagement of the corresponding experts.

Partnership Law

The rights and obligations of partners in partnerships (OG, KG) are often insufficiently known to them. The legal framework for partnerships is less comprehensively regulated than, for example, the one of the limited liability company law. Therefore with the composition of memorandums of association for partnerships, a comprehensive regulation of all essential topics is important. Especially in this legal field one should pay attention that future legal disputes and liability traps be avoided by clear regulations in memorandums of association.

Company Law

The Company Code (UGB) regulates the central issues of corporate activities.

This includes the formation of the company and the related acquirer liability, the proxy and the authority, the possible organisation forms, the bookkeeping, the accounting and the special regulations for company related transactions (commodity purchase, commission business, forwarding business, warehousing and forwarding), together with related problem issues, such as notice of defects, right of retention or pledge utilization. We represent also in the related company register procedures.
