Is my management contract fully in conformity with the law? Am I sufficiently protected as a seller/buyer of this business enterprise ? How can I establish good working rules with my fellow shareholders?
Corporate law is the collection of rules for the daily life and commercial needs of companies and organisations. These rules mainly relate to legal entities, but also any natural person who carries on a professional activity independently, including practitioners of a liberal profession.
Company law, for example, determines how your company should be managed or how you can transfer your shares. These rules only apply to legal entities.
Adlex advocaten & bemiddelaars has a team of experienced lawyers who will advise and assist you personally and individually in all aspects of your corporate existence, including:
- drafting all kinds of commercial contracts, such as a management contract, a commercial agency or a distribution contract.
- finding the appropriate structure for your company, both for natural persons and companies.
- negotiating and drafting shareholder agreements or advising directors in the performance of their duties.
- assisting buyers and sellers of trade funds and shares in a wide range of sectors of economic life. Adlex advocaten & bemiddelaars advises small businesses, SMEs and family businesses, as well as European players.
Naturally, a dispute may arise at any time within your commercial relations or within your company. Wherever possible, our team strives to achieve a negotiated solution, as Adlex advocaten & bemiddelaars strongly believes in reaching a solution that is supported by all parties concerned to the extent possible, for example in the form of mediation. If an amicable solution proves impossible, our team will advise and represent your company in court.
Finally, our team is also there for you when your company finds itself in troubled financial waters. Adlex advocaten & bemiddelaars will try to find a solution to your payment problems jointly with you, in which connection, sound agreements with your creditors can often restore your business.
