When it comes to financing issues, knowledge of the market and its standards is as important as legal expertise. We have years of experience in negotiating all types of loan agreements and the related security instruments. We advise, inter alia, on real estate finance, acquisition/leveraged finance, venture debt, working capital loans, asset finance and other types of financing, including, of course, refinancing and the restructuring of financial liabilities. Further special experience and expertise distinguish us in cases of litigation financing and in banking and capital markets law, in particular on bonds and promissory notes (Schuldscheindarlehen). The majority of our clients, who have trusted us for years, originate from the financial sector. Alongside banks, especially companies from private equity and private debt environment as well as FinTech companies put their trust in us.
Our daily work is characterized by advising companies of all sizes and orientations, from newly founded start-ups to medium-sized, often owner-managed “hidden champions”, to listed corporations. We advise on all issues of corporate law, from M&A, venture capital and private equity to corporate housekeeping to special issues of financing, commercial contracts, state aid and takeovers, as well as on stock corporation and capital market law issues. Our corporate law advice also includes assistance in meeting all regulatory requirements (“compliance”), for example with regard to the implementation of the EU Whistleblower Directive, the implementation or evaluation of compliance systems or anti-money laundering requirements.
