Our firm advises a wide range of clients on every aspect of their corporate legal requirements. These clients include local, foreign and multi-national organizations, from small start-up ventures through to Fortune 500 companies. We advise both publicly traded and private held companies, as well as financial institutions and other legal entities regarding all corporate law issues. Our clients operate in a diverse range of industry sectors, such as energy, healthcare, information technology, hospitality, and textiles, among others.
Some of our regular corporate services to clients include establishing and reviewing corporate structures, corporate secretarial work like arranging and conducting general assemblies or shareholders meetings, as well as making applications to trade registries. We routinely assist clients with management-related corporate consulting support and provide general legal advice in response to our clients’ questions and business needs.
We regularly negotiate and draft a range of documents and agreements to support our clients’ corporate needs, including share purchase and shareholders agreements, Board of Directors resolutions and Articles of Incorporation, as well as all documents necessary in the event of dissolution or liquidation.
Our firm has a strong capacity to represent corporate clients effectively due to our expertise in other legal disciplines essential to corporate work, such as intellectual property, competition, dispute resolution, and tax law.
Our primary guiding principles are universal and national ethical values, independence of the legal practice and the indivisibility of legal science and legal practice. This is reflected in our relationship with clients, not as a temporarily hired provider of legal services but rather as a trusted advisor for both legal and strategic matters.
Our clients include national, foreign and multi-national commercial, industrial and financial enterprises. We are known in our jurisdiction as a detail oriented, well-connected, hands-on and concentrated law firm, as well as being expert at handling complex tasks, whether these tasks are related to transactions, disputes or settlements. We regularly advise and support clients with complex issues and demanding matters, requiring us to provide multidisciplinary attention to reach creative and innovative solutions for our clients.
Our primary purpose in representing and advising clients is to provide and implement clear, applicable and pragmatic solutions which focus on the specific needs of our clients’ transaction, legal question or dispute. This always includes our attorneys adopting a holistic approach to the wider legal and commercial situation. We integrate our individual expertise and collaborate between our corporate advisory, intellectual property, tax and dispute resolution teams, among other practice areas.
We focus on our clients’ business sectors and actively participate in professional associations and events. We are capable of communicating in English, German and French. These factors all contribute to our ability to consistently provide the best possible client experience.
