The legal relationship between a company and its board of directors or executives is characterised by complexity, liability risks and high levels of capital expenditure. Mistakes made at the outset often avenge themselves years later. Particularly for listed companies subject to strong regulation, navigating the board and executive levels in a way that is legally secure is a demanding task
The situation is no less pressing for SMEs and family-owned businesses that have to position themselves vis-à-vis external managers. Whether you are an owner, shareholder or the chair of the supervisory or advisory board: As your partner, we help direct your attention to the future, preventing risk, managing separations effectively and lodging claims correctly. With everything that this entails. And with real bite, if need be. Including assertive and competent legal representation in protracted and complex litigation.
