Among our clients are owner-managed companies, family businesses and subsidiaries of domestic and foreign corporate groups of any size and legal form – typical medium-sized companies, the specific issues and problems of which we have been familiar with for many years. This can be explained by the fact that our law firm exhibits the same structures: active associates, short communication channels and lean organizational structures.
Our clients request a competent solution for their complex issues – answering individual questions is not sufficient if the clients are left alone in the practical implementation. What they rightly expect of us is practical and practicable solutions and concrete suggestions for decision-making, not scholarly studies
For some time now, the fulfillment of official duties has not been an easy-going task for municipalities, districts and other statutory corporations. Besides the competition from the private sector, a multitude of prescriptions, often initiated in Brussels and implemented in Berlin, place obstacles in their path. We assist our clients in implementing new ways of cooperation with private sector companies, in fulfilling their tasks in the legal form of private sector companies and in public matters (e.g. special issues of trade tax). The observance of the special regulations and requirements for companies of the public sector is a matter of course for us.
We advise and represent credit institutions in the legal assessment and realization of loan securities and in the enforcement of their contractual rights in court as well as out of court.
Decisions on the granting of credits or the continuance of financing involvements need to be well-informed. In view of the precedents of the Federal Court of Justice, this is particularly important for decisions of banks in connection with companies at risk of failure. The interdisciplinary cooperation of our financial auditors, tax advisors, lawyers and management consultants ensures the preparation of well-founded opinions regarding financial rehabilitation, excessive indebtedness and financial solvency assessments. As a matter of course, we also actively support debtors deemed worthy of financial rehabilitation in implementing the rehabilitation concepts.
We live in a complex society and the legal and fiscal framework conditions are complicated in equal measure.
