In contrast to the clients of large international law firms, for whom a high degree of specialization is required, medium-sized companies in Germany and entrepreneurs are often dealing with issues that cannot be solved with specialist knowledge alone. Rather, the entrepreneur's business and private spheres are complexly interwoven, which is why a holistic view from different perspectives is necessary. Real lateral thinking is required here!
In the case of a business split, private real estate serves the company. In the case of a sale or succession planning, issues relating to company law, inheritance law, income tax and inheritance tax must be solved holistically.

3Q|Law not only legally advises clients in Hamburg and Northern Germany, but also nationally in Germany and internationally in the field of M&A (sale of companies).

The management of both large corporations and medium-sized companies in Germany is not aware of the personal liability risks as managing directors, executive board members or even supervisory board members in Germany. German legislation and case law have made the scope of obligations extremely broad, so that entrepreneurial decisions are always burdened with the risk of personal liability. This applies in particular to corporate acquisitions and sales in Germany, but also to real estate transactions in Germany or other decisions with major implications. Here, the volumes usually exceed the coverage amounts of D&O insurances or the insurer evades the obligation to pay on the basis of various arguments.
In order to safeguard personal assets, the German managing director, executive board or supervisory board should not wait "until the baby has dropped in the well", but should actively take measures at the corporate level, but above all also at the private level, to safeguard his core assets against attacks.
3Q|Law not only legally advises clients in Hamburg and Northern Germany, but also internationally, especially in the area of M&A (sale or purchase of companies). The preparation of contract documentation as well as the conduct of negotiations in English are essential for this.
