Today's challenges need new approaches. Manfred Keller and his team will accompany you as your contact partner in all matters. You will benefit from our experience and expertise. And from our network of (international) specialists.
CORPORATE AND BUSINESS
We are able to establish your corporate entities (AG, GmbH, etc.) and partnerships, as well as any other corporate bodies for organisation of the business (e.g. associations, business foundations, cooperatives). We draft rules of procedure and other corporate governance programmes. We provide you with support in any change of a company's legal form, or restructuring and reorganisation and take care of the optimal discontinuation (liquidation or other form of winding up) or transfer of your business.
Participation and cooperation organisation
Regardless of whether you want to enter into a long-term relationship with a business associate (e.g. the establishment of joint ventures and interest associations) or project-related business cooperation, pursue structural participation strategies or need to cooperate for a specific purpose - we will find, design and implement the optimal solution for you.
Official permits and approvals
We will organise your commercial authorisations to carry out your business activities, necessary permits, impact assessments and certificates of approval for machinery and operating facilities, and ensure that your company complies with all administrative requirements.
Workforce and staff
We are available to assist you with the organisation of your workforce in all matters relating to labour and social law, regardless of whether this involves the management of your business or part-time staff, whether complex restructuring measures are pending, employee investment and other incentive schemes are to be created or where ordinary business operations are involved.
Protection of identity
We can protect your intangible assets and assist you in registering, securing and enforcing them.
Business administration and compliance
We provide legal support in the implementation and execution of your company's tax organisation and financial management, draft compliance standards and policies. We also take care of the necessary mechanisms required for the economic management of your business.
Once successful enterprises are often confronted with higher cost structures and lower turnover. Business ideas have not been implemented as planned. Unexpected events have a serious impact on business operations. Those who want to remain successful in the market long term have to cope with turbulence now and again. Reacting with optimal restructuring, financing and reorganisation measures secures the advantage and creates stability in the course of the company's history.
If the situation is not promising, we will advise and assist you regarding the liquidation of your company under proper insolvency law. This way, you can draw a clean line with this conclusion. Without having to deal with any further official or judicial prosecution. And in the best possible position for a fresh start.
Mergers and Acquisitions
Our network enables us to provide comprehensive support in the acquisition of companies as well as in the transfer or merger of parts of companies. This may take the form of "targeting" with our management consultants and auditors, comprehensive due diligence support (with international law firms if necessary), drafting of contracts, financing support and finally, post-merger integration.
INHERITANCE LAW, COMPANY AND ASSET SUCCESSION
We also consider other dangers to entrepreneurship or peace within families. Missed succession arrangements during one's lifetime, inheritance law and divorce. Leaving too late or leaving in a weak position. We safeguard your business from these dangers. And vice versa: Of course, we also know where the weak points of a company are and where asset succession can be found. For children, as well as for the person who is still the husband or still the wife. These people can also be helped.
REAL ESTATE AND BUILDING PROJECTS
We accompany the purchase or sale of real estate / properties. We advise you regarding transfers within the family. We draw up contracts, correspond with authorities, take care of time-consuming bureaucratic procedures, ensure that the title is recorded in the land register, maintain the purchase price as a trustee and take care of your taxes. We ensure that every party involved in every real estate transaction receives or retains its right.
We oversee entire real estate projects - starting with the initial idea, we perform the first calculations, initiate the call for tenders and possible architectural competitions and accompany the project through to the drafting of contracts for developers or general contractors. We will accompany you through the complete implementation process, draft the contracts with the tradesmen / general contractors and make sure that plans and contracts are adhered to.
Once the real estate project has been completed, the hardships of everyday life begin. Here, too, we are your contact. We help with administration and ensure that the provisions of the Austrian Condominium Act (WEG) are complied with.
LETTING AND LEASING
Whether you are a landlord or a tenant, a lessor or a lessee, we look after your rights and obligations and safeguard your housing needs or your investment. We draw up and check tenancy agreements, leasing agreements, ensure compliance with the WEG and everything "in between".
Man does not live by bread alone. Life would be unthinkable without the charitable activities of associations, NGOs and all other forms of human cooperation. We are grateful for this and proud to be able to make a small contribution in this area. Pro Bono or at special rates.
ART AND CULTURE
We respect art and culture. We do not want to be there to be there. We do not want to abuse art and culture as our business card. On the contrary: we long for their perspective and narrative art. The immediacy. Seen in this light, it goes without saying that we serve art and culture and learn from it.
That's why we work with painters, writers, composers, presidents and conductors. And they work with us.
NEGOTIATION AND DISPUTE RESOLUTION
A good legal opinion does not make a winner. We believe that negotiation services, whether in court or not, must go beyond that. We offer complete litigation support with a costs and risk analysis, a comprehensive case-by-case strategic orientation, intensive preparations and, finally, lawyers who know how to represent your case. With experience and last but not least: Knowledge of human nature.
CRIMINAL LAW AND COMMERCIAL CRIMINAL LAW
We first of all accompany you in the preliminary proceedings and not only ensure that your rights are protected, but we also work out the best possible defence strategy with you at an early stage. As a commercial law firm, we understand complex interrelationships that are sometimes overlooked in white-collar criminal cases.
