Find Lawyers in Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany for Corporate Law
Practice Area Overview
For quite some time now, a lawyer advising on corporate law in the German market is required to have a thorough knowledge of private equity and venture capital transactions, meaning cross-border acquisitions, management buy-outs, investors’ participation, and shareholders’ exit strategies and due diligence reporting. In contrast, stock corporations will demand a more capital market-oriented experience, so that the advisor shall be in a position to assist with public takeovers, squeeze-outs, and delisting. Another steadily growing important field of corporate law covers corporate governance and compliance analysis, which means helping management and supervisory boards to avoid legal infringements and to comply with reporting obligations and insider-dealing regulations.
In most law firms, it is the corporate lawyer who is a company’s contact person. Consequently, it is the corporate lawyer’s task to build a team of experts covering the respective fields of law just like tax, real estate, labor, insolvency, or litigation, always having in mind to suit the client’s business needs by delivering cost-efficient, innovative, and effective solutions.
