CORPORATE & ENTREPRENEURSHIP
MKRG has a long and successful tradition of advising on all topics of Corporate Law and Entrepreneurship (labour law / corporate law / commercial law / M&A / restructuring & insolvency law / tax law). Our attorneys who are specialized in these fields of law regularly advise on specific questions, are highly qualified and have extensive practical experience. As a result they are able to successfully support companies, entrepreneurs, investors and other clients with tailor-fit solutions and enormous success.
Employment law is subject to constant changes caused by new laws and court rulings which have direct impact on HR management.
We have many years of experience in individual and collective employment law, on the basis of which we provide you with proposals and strategies to create the best solution. In the event of disputes we provide you with legal support at labour courts of all levels.
INDIVIDUAL EMPLOYMENT LAW
Our specialists in individual employment law support both, employers and employees (corporate bodies and management staff) on all aspects of employment law that may arise for both sides during an employment relationship.
COLLECTIVE EMPLOYMENT LAW
With our expertise as specialist lawyers for employment law, we provide support on all questions of collective labour law and develop strategies and solutions with our clients, e.g. in the negotiation of works agreements, company-based wage agreements and restructuring (reconciliation of interests, social plan) right down to arbitration and conciliation proceedings
Advising domestic and foreign companies, their owners (like e.g. Family Offices) and private persons on all matters of company law is one of the main focal points of MKRG. We provide advice for all types of companies (limited companies, public limited companies, partnerships etc.). Our legal services cover the structuring, establishment, transformation and liquidation of companies, the drafting of articles of association and shareholders’ agreements, preparations for AGMs and shareholders’ assemblies, corporate governance, capital measures and the laws relating to corporate groups. In this context, we also advise on succession and inheritance regulations.
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 deliver the highest quality and are consistently committed to the economic goals of our clients. It is always our aim to develop appropriate and practicable solutions for shareholders, companies and other parties and persons concerned.
The operative businesses of our clients – purchasing, production and distribution – are at the heart of our commercial services.
The globalisation of markets, the resulting issues and constant developments in data traffic are changing the demands for trade, both nationally and internationally.
We advise manufacturers, purchasing departments and importers in the processing of changing contractual requirements. We track opportunities and challenges in the markets and monitor these developments with our experts.
Our team advises you on all aspects of trading and distribution law such as distribution and storage of goods (in particular purchasing and sales terms, warranty agreements, guarantees, distribution contracts).
If required we also represent our clients in and out of court when it comes to disputes connected to commercial law.
MERGERS & ACQUISITIONS (M&A)
Another important focus of MKRG’s activities are national and international M&A transactions. Thanks to many years of expertise, we cover the entire range of advisory services. We organise and perform national and international due diligence reviews, structure the entire transaction and draft and negotiate the complete documentation of contracts and transactions. Our lawyers know all the mechanisms and requirements on the buyer’s as well as on the seller’s side based on years of consulting experience on both sides. Where necessary, we work together with suitable partner firms in the international arena.
RESTRUCUTRING & INSOLVENCY
When companies are in a financial crisis they need professional support. In such cases legal advice, backed up by a high level of economic expertise, is of vital importance in order to create the legal and structural preconditions to (re)establish a sustainable basis for the future. MKRG has an outstanding reputation in the execution of corporate reorganisation and restructuring measures, in particular in the service of mid-sized enterprises, and advises companies, their management bodies and creditors on all the issues involved in restructuring. In addition, MKRG provides expert support on all aspects of insolvency.
Nowadays companies and entrepreneurs have to think more and more in cross-border dimensions. This is particularly true in the field of tax law, where legislation and the application of law are very fast-moving. It is almost impossible to think of a national or international business without considering the requirements of tax law. The relevant interfaces range from transaction, company and financial law to accounting regulations and include legal structuring with foreign implications and of course all the issues relating to the transfer of shares and assets etc.
Topics relating to real estate ownership, its allocation and tax treatment are often highly relevant.
The aim of our tax accountancy services is to wherever possible maintain and grow the assets of both corporate and private clients taking account for the overall complexity of business and personal asset structures. One special focus is on optimising changes in company or transfer pricing structures from a taxation point of view.
MKRG advises clients on achieving legal tax certainty, uncovering risks in the tax and accounting structure of individual processes and minimizing them as far as possible, e.g. in case of company acquisitions, sales and mergers. We, of course, also represent our clients before tax authorities and in court proceedings.
We will be happy to cooperate with your own accountants or auditors. We also work together other tax accountants with regard to ongoing compliance and we maintain close contacts within our international network.
