In this fast-growing economy, we see that many entrepreneurs are developing new business activities. Are you among them? Then you will be facing a number of legal issues. Will you establish a new company for these activities? How will your companies relate to each other? And will you become a director, or do you opt for a share as director/board member? In the latter case, will you opt for an administrative regulation so you can keep a finger on the pulse? Our team of specialist corporate lawyers will be happy to work with you to find out what suits you and your company best.

Corporate law specialists

Will you be working together with other entrepreneurs? We will answer your questions as to which form of cooperation is the most appropriate. The options include a joint venture or another form of cooperation.

You should also consider the legal form of your partnership and how you will be doing business together. If you are going to work together in a private limited company, a shareholders’ agreement is essential. Will you opt for a general partnership? This will require a general partnership contract. Our specialists will support you with much more than just choosing a type of company. We also draw up the necessary agreements for you, with the aim of ensuring that you and your cooperation partners know exactly what you can expect from each other.

Or are you looking to end the collaboration? For example, because a shareholder conflict has arisen? In such a situation you can also rely on us, armed with a strategic view. Winding up of partnerships, regardless of the form of partnership, is part of the core business of our specialist lawyers. We are happy to concretise the termination together with you, in order to achieve the best possible result for you.
