In the field of corporate law, our notaries mainly advise and assist medium-sized companies and their shareholders. Our practice in this field includes the founding of companies — such as GmbH (private limited), GmbH & Co. KG or joint stock corporations (Aktiengesellschaften) — in the context of which the choice of the appropriate legal form and the drafting of balanced articles of association are of crucial importance. The notarisation of amendments to articles of association and other shareholder resolutions are also frequent subjects of our notaries’ official business, however.
A further focus of our firm’s notarial practice in the field of corporate law is the notarisation of company purchase agreements and other disposals of company shares. Our notaries also frequently notarise measures conducted under the German Transformation Act (Umwandlungsgesetz) (mergers, demergers, changes of legal form) or other restructuring measures. Finally, our notaries draw up and certify applications filed with commercial registers almost on a daily basis, such as appointments and dismissals of managing directors and authorised signatories, amendments to articles of association requiring registration or changes to domestic business addresses.
