Commercial law and corporate law are a main focus of our law firm. Our law firm has been dealing with corporate law for many years in particular in areas closely interwoven with investment law. This applies in particular to public partnerships with questions relating to liability and the obligation to make additional contributions as well as investments in corporations or cooperatives.

Jan N. Machunsky is familiar with all current issues of company law through his work as a lawyer and after successfully completing the specialist course in commercial and company law and through his work as a lecturer at the University of Hildesheim.

Due to the high economic competence of our lawyers we advise and represent you with a high focus on practice.

corporate law
Whether company formation and choice of legal form, amendment of articles of association, capital measures or shareholder disputes, we are happy to advise you. Our focus is on problems and questions that tend to lie outside our daily business. This includes internal company disputes as well as questions of insolvency law. At the intersection with investment law, we are concerned with issues such as the obligation to make additional contributions to public partnerships, the rights of dormant partners and the liability of limited partners.
