Objective: Comprehensive legal services to entrepreneurs, businesses, cooperatives and corporations.

One of the key areas where Witt & Kleim Law office provides legal services is the corporate law sector.

The law office assesses for clients legally and economically most optimal legal forms of their business, performs the tasks associated with the factual establishment of a company, as well as with its changes (such as when an investor enters), revocation and cancellation. The law office also designs and implements corporate governance (internal adjustment of rights and obligations within the business structures), the reorganization to the holding units and mergers and acquisitions. (More in the section Legal services – Mergers and acquisitions).

Thanks to the specific knowledge we provide clients with legal services in cases of displacement of minority shareholders (a squeeze-out), in takeover bids or, conversely, defense against hostile takeovers of companies (hostile takeover). Legal services in the context of corporate legal advice also include services for starting entrepreneurs building their start-ups (see also section Legal services - Start-ups) and comprehensive advice for subsequent businesses (see also section Legal services - law of Contracts, Legal services - Receivables management, Legal services - Intellectual property).
