Corporate and capital markets law

Constantly changing markets, advancing internationalization and increasing regulatory requirements present companies with ever-increasing challenges. We provide comprehensive support to companies and entrepreneurs in all matters of corporate and capital market law, including compliance advice.


LLR advises on the design and structuring of companies and M&A transactions. The range of advice extends from setting up a company to acquiring or selling a company to company succession.


One focus is the preparation and implementation of general meetings of listed companies. We provide support from the preparation, convening and practical planning to the implementation and handling of the general meeting. If necessary, we can also represent interests in subsequent legal disputes.


Another focus is on comprehensive advice to governing bodies as well as advice on issues relating to corporate governance and its appropriate, company-related design. This also includes in-depth expertise in the area of ​​compliance. LLR supports companies in the development, optimization and integration of compliance programs in order to avoid compliance violations, which often have far-reaching consequences, right from the start. In the event of compliance violations, we assist companies in asserting and defending against legal and out-of-court claims as well as against supervisory and antitrust authorities.


In the area of ​​financing, we support companies in the structuring and implementation of financing measures, be it the national or international offering of shares, bonds or other financial investments or subsequent capital increases and stock exchange listing procedures. We have extensive experience with the preparation of securities prospectuses and investment prospectuses as well as the implementation of an approval process at BaFin and other European supervisory authorities. We also advise on investment law issues, particularly when examining target funds for investors.


A targeted and tailor-made solution that is based on individual wishes and circumstances is our top priority. LLR has an experienced team available for this purpose. We ourselves also belong to corporate bodies or have already worked on the corporate side.


As highly specialised lawyers in an independent partnership, we can guarantee that each mandate is handled by the partner with the best professional qualifications. The diversity of individual skills and consistent specialisation is what makes the breadth and quality of legal advice in such a compact commercial law firm possible in the first place. The heterogeneity of the key players is a recipe for success for our law firm.
