Company Law

Notarial work in company law is diverse. The establishment of limited liability companies (GmbH, AG) is subject to certification.

For partnerships (OHG, KG) the declaration required for registration needs to be supplied in notarial form in the commercial register.

The transfer of shares of a limited liability company (GmbH) to another shareholder or third party must be made in documentary form.

Company law changes, e.g. amendments to statutes, capital increases and reductions and certain decisions and acts in the company require notarisation. These include, for example, the implementation of general meetings in public companies.

Notarial certification may be necessary for restructuring (conversion, e.g. change of legal status, separation, mergers) or transfers of companies.
