We advise companies and entrepreneurs in choosing the legal form that best suits their needs and in supporting them with all the legal issues in a company's life cycle.
We value clear, practice-oriented concepts and solutions, but we also take on representation in the event of a contentious shareholder dispute or in matters related to director liability. Our clients can rely on the expertise of our long-standing partners in matters involving foreign countries, accounting and tax law, as well as issues related to criminal law.
The health care system is increasingly regulated by law, which creates both opportunities and risks for all service providers. Legal advice and representation require specialist knowledge and experience, as social and civil law issues often overlap. An understanding of the economic interests of the market participants is equally important. As specialists, we have been working for doctors, dentists, clinics, pharmacies and other service providers since the firm was founded.
We provide representation and advice in all matters relating to SHI accreditation, professional law, licensing law and hospital law. We develop legally secure and entrepreneurial solutions for our clients. Our in-depth specialist knowledge of medical and corporate law allows us to take a broad view on advising our clients on the planning and implementation of medical cooperation groups. So we can provide optimal support for typical projects, such as establishing or restructuring joint practices, medical care units and group practices or issues related to disputes or takeovers. Because we consider professional law, SHI accreditation and company law when drafting contracts, we prevent our clients from protracted legal disputes.
Our energy sources and the ways they are used have changed rapidly as part of the ongoing energy revolution. The legal framework for the generation, distribution, trade and consumption of electricity, gas and heat has changed just as quickly. The liberalisation of the energy market, which started with the new Energy Industry Act of 1996, has significantly multiplied the number of market participants at all stages of the value chain.
We have been involved in this change from the very beginning – providing support to young companies in the "liberalisation generation". Some of them have gained considerable size and stature. The entry of site network operators into the market of distribution networks on the “last mile” that is dominated by area suppliers was one subject of cartel proceedings that we initiated on behalf of a site network operator and successfully supported up to the “Mainova” judgement of the Federal Supreme Court. Since the early 1990s we have become renowned for legal concepts for innovative decentralised supply projects for industry and the housing sector.
Setting up a foundation is increasingly seen as positive way to invest private or company assets permanently – beyond our own lifetime. Personal reasons for specific purposes or tax advantages play an important role here. We show our clients the structuring options and legal forms available and the legal requirements to be observed.
We have comprehensive knowledge of foundation law and issues relating to non-profit status, as well as many years of practical experience as executors of wills, founders of foundations, board members and members of the board of trustees. We assist our clients with questions regarding the appropriate (recognised) purpose, the foundation assets required for long-term fulfilment and the best possible organisation.
We assist our clients in private construction and real estate law, providing support for completing all types of projects.
We have been advising all market players for decades, providing representation in and out of court. We develop tailor-made solutions and find customised implementation options, even in unconventional situations. We represent builders, project developers, buyers, property developers and estate agents. We understand the perspective of both the lawyer and the notary from our own decades of practice. We know what is important, especially in handling real estate transactions. Thanks to our broad interdisciplinary network with strong and experienced partners, we can see the big picture. We assist and advise our clients in complex transaction processes while also asserting or defending claims in and out of court. We focus on developing straightforward and economical solutions for our clients.
We provide in-depth advice to our clients on regulating their asset succession and developing regulations for succession planning tailored to their individual needs. We represent our clients in out-of-court negotiations and in court in settling estates and enforcing inheritance law claims.
We draw up tried and tested precautionary provisions for illness and emergencies in the form of provisional powers of attorney, living wills and care orders.
Separation and divorce are economically and emotionally stressful for clients. We offer advice that is both competent and empathetic and geared to our client’s life situation. We seek amicable solutions in the first instance, drawing up prenuptial agreements and separation and divorce agreements. We also provide our clients with robust representation in all family law court proceedings.
We have been working out the best solutions our clients for 35 years, in both emotional and legal terms.
