Legal Services for Corporate Customers

Successful business calls for a proactive approach and timely legal consulting. We provide legal services for the entire lifecycle of a company, from the preparation of its foundation documents to changes in ownership. 

We have 30 years’ experience in assisting businesses. We currently work in several companies as an in-house lawyer. In this approach, the legal services needed by the client are provided at a fixed contract price. 

We advise our clients on numerous company-related matters on a daily basis. We also act as a company lawyer for our clients. This enables us to better understand the company and its need for legal assistance, and thus to offer precisely targeted legal services efficiently and quickly. A part of our work consists of negotiations and the drafting of contracts for different kinds of changes in a company’s ownership structure. A good command of general company law and strong negotiation skills create the basis for these services. Issues of company law often play a central role in the planning and implementation of acquisitions, changes to corporate structure, financial and other business arrangements, capital investments, and shareholder agreements. ► Read More
