Your spezialized corporate law lawyers in Germany (Berlin)

We are experts in German corporate law and are passionate about your business.

The German corporate law regulates the legal relationships of associations of persons under private law that are established for the fulfillment of a specific purpose through legal transactions. However, the legal basis cannot be found in a uniform body of law. Due to the numerous cross-references to other areas of law, such as the commercial law or competition law the legal provisions of coroprate law cover a wide variety of legal sources, depending on the type of company and the individual case. A comprehensive expertise in these cross-sectoral legal norms is therefore essential of a corporate lawyer's work.
