Corporate Governance & Shareholder Relations

We give tailor-made advice about how to establish and structure your company, and take all the other procedures on our shoulders, too – from opening bank accounts to drafting employment contracts. Then, once the company is established, we take care of all the corporate changes, small or large.

We provide sound advice on the best ways to organise your company – what type is the best for your business, what managing bodies would govern it in the most appropriate way given its size and nature, and what competences members of those managing bodies should have. We incorporate all this into the internal structure of your business, considering your existing corporate policies and the types of corporate identities available in the relevant jurisdiction.

Healthy shareholder relationships are a corner stone of each company. We help draft the agreements, whether following a M&A transaction or simply following the wish of owners to regulate mutual relations, which is always a welcome step. Should the relationships become strenuous, we assist during the times of conflict.
