Company Law

Company law, by its nature, is fundamental to our corporate clients. Company law issues come to the fore in connection with, for example, business acquisitions, restructuring and the winding up of businesses. Company law also often plays an important role in connection with advising on other areas of law, such as real estate law, employment law and intellectual property law. Every day, we provide company law advice to shareholders, boards of directors, CEOs and other company executives, as well as to different types of investors and other advisors.

Company law issues – a central part of companies’ day-to-day business

Company law plays a crucial role in a variety of decisions that a company makes – not only legal decisions but also purely commercial decisions. How will the company’s operations be financed? How will the business be organised: departments, divisions, subsidiaries or branches? How will the business grow? How will the company’s executives act if a company has financial problems? What do you do when a customer or supplier has financial problems? What’s the best way to wind up a business? As was mentioned, company law plays an important role for a variety of company actions, such as acquisitions, divestments and mergers, IPOs, restructuring, corporate governance, risk management, raising capital, profit distribution, and more.
