Thanks to our specialised knowledge and years of accumulated experience in company law, we can provide you with expert legal advice and result-oriented and practical solutions.

Incorporation (guidance, articles of association, shareholders’ agreements)

We can advise you from the start-up of the company through to its dissolution and liquidation. For example, we can assist you in choosing the right company format, drafting your bespoke articles of association and drawing up well-thought-out shareholders’ agreements. Together, these documents form a necessary basis, anticipating possible scenarios such as exit, disagreements or specific problems.

Merger and acquisitions (M&A)

We can assist you in the preparation of a process of transfer of shares or takeover of a business (letter of intent, non-disclosure agreement, due diligence, etc.). In addition, we can support you in conducting negotiations, drawing up watertight takeover contracts and conducting proceedings in the event that the agreements are not respected.

Disputes between shareholders

We can provide advice and assistance in disputes between shareholders (exit and exclusion) and other company conflicts, including disputes such as those relating to directors’ liability, or disputes arising from a takeover.

Corporate housekeeping

We can ensure the correctness of your corporate housekeeping and assist you with company law matters, including conformity of the articles of association with the new Code of Companies and Associations, assistance with the general meeting such as drafting minutes, publication of resolutions of the general meeting, change of registered office and dismissal and appointment of directors.

Liquidation and dissolution

We can provide professional legal advice and guidance to help you through the liquidation and dissolution process, from preparation to actual liquidation and dissolution.
