Company Law and M&A 

KPMG`s Legal unites in the practice „Company Law and M&A” several fields of law that in the day-to-day running of a business often appear in combination.


It includes classic questions of corporate and accounting law like e.g. stock corporation law or GmbH law as well as legal questions in connection with transactions and the comprehensive field of audit law in which we, as a service line of an audit company, have of course exceptionally high competences and wide experience.

Company Law

You`re about to change the legal form of your organization? You have to work out a complex contract or to adjust personal liability issues? You`ve come to the right place.

Mergers & Acquisitions

We advise you in all legal interests of mergers & acquisitions and public takeovers, from letter of intent and due diligence to contracts and agreements up to the point of signing und closing.

Accounting and Auditing Law

This field of law is our natural core competence. Gladly we assist you with your audit-relating obligations and help you discharging them completely.

Receivership and composition proceedings are highly sensitive issues; therefore our clients appreciate not only our national and international bankruptcy legal aid, but also the personal competences. The same goes for restructurings, which we do f. e. with the goal of recapitalization or transaction.
