in commercial law
There are specialists for every task. And together they form the foundation for success. Schultze & Braun develops robust and workable structures for companies. The firm’s team of accomplished and experienced specialists provide ongoing advice and assistance to managers and shareholders, prepare for decision-making, and act as an “outsourced legal department” to provide their clients with comprehensive support. During the start-up phase, in day-to-day operations or in relation to corporate succession. Naturally we work closely with company personnel and internal departments as well as external advisors.
This leaves our clients free to concentrate on the essentials: the success of their company.
Advice to directors and officers/structure of company organs
How can directors, board members and shareholders protect themselves?
Schultze & Braun advises and supports clients on all legal questions connected to major decisions (in relation to the “business judgement rule”). We minimise the risk for decision-makers and optimise the financial results for the company.
What are the requirements regarding the conduct of management and employees?
Compliance is not something that only blue-chip companies have to worry about. Schultze & Braun sensitises companies to potential risks and helps them put transparent structures in place. We also advise on employment-related issues around compliance and whistleblowing.
How do you prepare for an AGM or important resolutions? How do you implement changes to a company’s management or supervisory boards?
Schultze & Braun helps clients convene meetings, prepare resolutions and minutes and arrange commercial register entries. We advise and assist clients before and during meetings. If required, we can act as an outsourced legal department and look after regular organisational and administrative activities in relation to registers, authorities or company organs.
How can you optimise your corporate structure?
Whether you are changing shareholders or financing structures, you need to guard against risks, or you are interested in operational or tax optimisation: Your corporate structure has to be right. Schultze & Braun adapts structures to meet new challenges and is happy to work in collaboration with the client’s existing tax advisors.
How can the risks of corporate succession be minimised?
A new generation taking the helm not only present risks for a company, it also creates opportunities. Schultze & Braun helps companies to exploit these opportunities and avoid pitfalls. Because corporate succession also has tax implications, we work closely with our auditors and tax consultants, or with our clients’ own advisors.
