Corporate Law and M&A

The lawyers at the practice have unique experience in corporate structuring. As such they can provide general legal assistance in corporate law and successfully follow particularly complex instructions from clients. Typical examples include:

  • building corporate management models with multiple foreign elements, containing complex  corporate or financial structures with shareholders, requirements as to the degree of transparency and flexibility that meet the expectations of potential investors, and other models that satisfy specific criteria;
  • preparation of internal corporate documentation to create additional internal control instruments for shareholders over the activities of management bodies and to make it easier to bring to account (both financially and otherwise) unscrupulous management staff, ensuring that the corporation and its management fulfil the legislative requirements governing the industry, including occupational health and safety, industrial safety, tax and environmental legislation;
  • rendering support for the reorganisation of corporations under unusual circumstances, including the simultaneous reorganisation of multiple connected entities, reorganisation when there have been potential breaches of creditors’ rights, and reorganisation as part of corporate insolvency.
