Legal form of companies

Anyone setting up a company, restructuring a group of companies or succeeding someone else faces the question of the optimal legal form for economic success.

Questions relating to liability, financing, management and control of the company, types of profit and loss sharing, obligations to disclose year-end accounts, taxation and the number of partners play a significant role when selecting the legal form. The aim here is to take advantage of opportunities and avoid risks.

When considering the appropriate legal form, decision criteria relating to company law, finance and tax law are closely intertwined. This is where you benefit from the teamwork displayed by our auditors, tax advisors and attorneys-at-law who develop an individual strategy for you when it comes to choosing the legal form.
