Commercial and Corporate Law

As a commercial law company M&P advises primarily medium-sized companies and entrepreneurs in the field of commercial and corporate law.

Economic understanding of business cases

The economic understanding of our clients` individual business models always forms the base of our legal advice. Our clients appreciate our tailor-made recommendations for action on a legally sound basis.

Corporate law is one of our core competences. Due to the increasing complexity of legal regulations and the relevant case law, there is a need for legal advice in companies not only for important strategic projects, such as the implementation of restructuring and transactions, but also in day-to-day business.

Our range of advice includes the law on limited liability companies, stock corporations, cooperatives and partnerships, including group and transformation law. We support companies, board members and shareholders in ongoing corporate law matters as well as in complex restructurings.

Liability Law

We focus on advising executive, supervisory boards and managing directors regarding to their personal liability as well as shareholders from the founding of the company to questions of corporate succession. Our team prepares and carries out shareholder or general meetings, the implementation of capital measures, restructuring and the settlement of disputes between companies and shareholders. Due to our expertise in corporate law we received an award as winner for the sector of “Company Formations” in Germany by the international trade magazine ‘Corporate Livewire‘ in 2016.
