Legal advice on the service relationships between companies or groups and their suppliers and customers is also the subject of this field of advice, as is the legal design of management and control (corporate governance), the organization, reorganization (including conversion) of companies and groups as well as the design of cooperations, company acquisitions and sales and other corporate transactions.
In addition, our work includes representing clients in courts and the activity as an arbitrator or arbitration expert in commercial or corporate law disputes.
In particular, reorganizations of companies usually require a multidisciplinary consulting approach involving various professions. In addition to commercial, corporate and labor law, these projects also regularly raise tax and accounting law issues. One of KOCH's particular strengths is the ability to put together and lead such multidisciplinary teams as needed, as well as to work as a team player with the experts on the client side - without any conflicts of interest.
Corporate law consulting example
A medium-sized concern wants to separate the production and sale of its goods and to combine these areas within the group to achieve advantages in specialization and to reduce costs by eliminating redundant structures. The reorganization is to be completed by a specific date. KOCH structures the reorganization legally and advises and supports the group in the implementation of suitable conversion measures of the affected group companies and in the reorganization of the intra-group service relationships.
The complex labor law challenges of these measures are mastered together with experienced labor law specialists from the KOCH network. In addition, a suitable design of the reorganization was developed in cooperation with tax experts from the KOCH network, which helps the group to save a considerable amount of trade tax by relocating the sales company to a municipality with a low trade tax rate.
