EXPERTISE | Company law

Company law as core mission

A company is an independent and sustained organisation within which one or more persons produce goods or services using material and immaterial tools against payment of a remuneration calculated on profitability.

Wide-ranging company law includes all of the rules concerning the company’s articles of association and the instruments – statutory, contractual and otherwise – the company possess itself and in relation to other companies for realising its objectives, as well as the rules concerning the actions of companies and the government relating to the market, with the aim or as a consequence of influencing market events.

Company takeovers

A company takeover may involve both the acquisition or the transfer of an entire enterprise or of an independent business unit. Selling a family business, taking over a SME, purchasing based on bankruptcy or strategically buying out a competitor. There are many kinds of company takeovers, and they occur for various reasons. The most common is the acquisition of all shares or all activities within a transport of the business activities.
