No matter the business sector, there are certain issues that each and every company must deal with. Our business consultancy services, thus, cover company law, compliance management, data protection, employment law as well as debt recovery support.
As the markets continue to evolve, many companies are challenged to refocus on competition. As company law experts, we provide counsel on the formation of companies, subsidiaries and joint ventures. This also includes advice on the choice of the legal form which best meets the company’s needs in terms of taxation and company law as well as counsel on situations where the involvement of a private investor may be advantageous. We also assist investors in the acquisition of a company or any parts thereof. Additionally, we support companies in turnaround management and also in the event of insolvency if it cannot be prevented through prior corporate restructuring.
The purpose of compliance is to design all operative and administrative processes of a company in a way that prevents infringements of company-internal rules or legal regulations to the greatest possible extent. For us, managing compliance risks constitutes an integral part of a company’s overall risk management and thus of its internal control system. Based on this comprehensive approach, we provide our clients with interdisciplinary advice and support on all organisational and legal matters.
Managing personal data has been firmly on the agenda of companies at the latest since the entry into force of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Companies are not only required to comply with the principles of lawfulness and transparency, purpose limitation, data minimisation, correctness, storage limitation and integrity as well as confidentiality, but also need to document processing activities.
Throughout the corporate world, employment law is growing in significance. Furthermore, complying with fundamental employment law requirements is a prerequisite for the successful organisation, restructuring and strategic positioning of any company. With our integrated approach combining expertise in company, employment as well as tax law and our experience with a multitude of employment-related court and arbitration cases, we are well-positioned to respond to any legal questions that may arise in this regard.
In times of generally declining solvency and poor payment behaviour, an effective debt recovery management is indispensable for companies. Due to our long-standing experience in recovering arrears for, among others, the world’s largest collecting society and many energy supply companies, we are able to provide speedy and comprehensive debt collection services. In addition, we support you in enforcing your rights against insolvent debtors and insolvency administrators. We help you make the right decision in every situation and advise and represent you in debt recovery and insolvency proceedings.
In the area of receivables management, we offer our clients an online information platform which allows them access to up-to-date information about the progress of the cases we are handling for them.
