Banking and capital markets law is a complex area of law which poses a variety of challenges for legal practitioners.
We act as a legal sounding board for the selection of a suitable financing model or for the reliable implementation of a capital market transaction. Our expertise covers classic bank loans, shareholder loans (including subordinated shareholder loans), profit-sharing rights, silent partnerships, convertible bonds or convertible loans, shareholder grants, start-up financing and capital increases. In this context, we support clients in all security interest matters (pledges on movable property, mortgages, suretyships, abstract guarantees, bills of exchange, intermediary recourse) – from legally effective creation of the interest through to compulsory enforcement.
We also advise on IPOs, bond issues, project financing and securities supervision issues. Where necessary, we enforce clients’ rights before state courts and arbitral tribunals in investor litigation.
