COMPANY LAW AND M&A

Providing expert advice on company law and corporate transactions (M&A) has a long tradition at MKRG. Our specialists have been working on complex and innovative M&A transactions for many years. All of them contribute high-level professional qualifications and extensive practical experience to the successful support of companies, entrepreneurs, investors and other clients.

COMPANY LAW

Advising domestic and foreign companies on matters of company law is one of the main focal points of operations at MKRG. Our experts provide advice on all types of companies (limited companies, public limited companies, partnerships etc.). Our legal advice services covers the structuring, establishment, daily business, transformation and liquidation of companies, the drafting of partnership agreements, articles of association and shareholders’ agreements, preparations for AGMs and shareholders’ assemblies, corporate governance, capital measures and the laws relating to corporate groups. In disputes relating to company law we also represent our clients both in and out of court, in state courts or courts of arbitration, contributing our many years of forensic experience to the promotion of their interests.

Our services range from advising startups for SMEs to major international corporate groups. We represent both, companies and their shareholders. At every level of company law we guarantee premium-quality services and dedicate ourselves to achieving the business objectives of our clients – regardless of whether we advise a company as a whole, its management on a specific issue, or its shareholders.

MERGERS & ACQUISITIONS (M&A)

One focus of our expertise is on domestic and international M&A transactions, in which we offer a full range of services. Our many years of experience in accompanying corporate acquisitions, sales and mergers enable us to implement every stage of the process effectively and efficiently with a manageable team of legal advisers – no matter how complex the project is. We organise and implement (domestic and international) due diligence conducts in accordance with the requirements of each particular deal, structure the entire transaction and draft and negotiate the contractual and transaction documentation, with complex international acquisitions as well as the sale of privately owned or listed companies. We provide legal services in other areas of jurisdiction through our associate network of independent law firms in other countries, because many transactions go well beyond national boundaries.
