Corporations and partnerships

Corporate disputes

Every corporate dispute has an individual basis, which happens to be a mix of both personal and business factors. The role of a lawyer is not only to design the structure of the company and the relationship between the partners so as to minimize the risk of a dispute, but also to alleviate it in the fastest and best possible way. Conducting a corporate dispute is not an end in itself. It cannot be permanent in nature. It is essential to mitigate it as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Limited partnerships

A limited partnership can be formed from the conversion of any partnership (general partnership, partnership and limited joint-stock partnership) and limited liability company (limited liability company and joint-stock company). It is also permissible to convert a civil partnership and an employment cooperative into a limited partnership. For sole proprietors, we prepare and support the process of establishing a limited partnership and making an enterprise as an in-kind contribution to this limited partnership.

What we do

  • legal and tax advice at the stage of designing a business, in a form that takes into account the operation of a limited partnership;

In business, it is unfortunately not possible to completely eliminate disputes between different interest groups. From the point of view of the company and its shareholders, it is of the utmost importance to conduct the dispute that has arisen in the least onerous manner possible.
