SKW Schwarz advises businesses of any size, no matter if they are organized as a corporate entity or as a partnership, including in particular mid-market, often family-operated companies in all matters of corporate law, from their creation until their sale or IPO.
We support our clients not only in their individual ‘one-time’ transactions (such as the acquisition or sale of a company, restructurings, participations, mergers, split-ups, spin-offs, carve-outs, creation of joint ventures or other strategic alliances, modification of legal form etc.), but also in the context of day-to-day business matters (continuous advice in corporate law, organisation of shareholders’ meetings, legal support for executive officers, managing directors and shareholders etc.).
The assistance by SKW Schwarz includes also our clients’ representation in litigation proceedings, whether before the public courts or at arbitration, for example as regards a shareholder dispute.
Obviously, we accompany our clients not only in Germany, but with the backup of our international law firm networks also in most other global jurisdictions. We offer particular expertise for French-German transactions and investments, in the context of which we deploy our long standing experience with the French jurisdiction and, last but not least, our knowledge of the French mentality and language.
Our clients come from various industry sectors; we are considered as a market leader for media & entertainment, information technologies, e-commerce, press, publishing and communication, games, but we are providing our services also to other industries, such as retail, consumer goods, commodities, fashion and luxury goods, banks and financing institutes, automotive, hotels and tourism, real estate, insurance, furniture, renewable energies, life sciences, biotech etc.
