If you want to start your own business, you must choose a legal form for your company. You can opt for a legal form with or without legal personality. This choice determines the legal structure of your company.
Corporate law lawyer helps determine legal form
If you opt for a legal form with legal personality, your company can participate independently in legal transactions, just like a natural person can. Your company can then conclude agreements as such, have assets and debts and be held liable.
Examples of legal entities with legal personality are:
• the private limited company (B.V.)
• the public limited company (N.V.)
• the foundation
• the union
• the cooperative
The B.V. and the N.V. are often used for a company with a commercial purpose. If your company has a more idealistic goal, it may be an option to set up a foundation and link a company to it. At a B.V. or a N.V., it is necessary to attract shareholders. However, it is also possible that you yourself become (sole) shareholder of the company. You can also read more about the aforementioned legal forms in our blog ‘Which legal form do I choose for my company?’.
When there is a relationship with shareholders, it is of great importance that this relationship is properly recorded. It is wise to have a shareholders’ agreement drawn up for this. Law & More’s corporate lawyers can help you draft or assess a shareholders’ agreement.
However, it is also possible to opt for a legal form without legal personality, such as a general partnership or a partnership. With these legal forms it is important that good agreements are made between the partners or partners, which are laid down in a partnership agreement, for example. The choice of a legal form has a direct influence on matters such as financing and liability. If you opt for a legal form without legal personality, your company cannot participate in legal transactions independently and you are, for example, liable with your private assets for the debts that your company incurs.
Examples of legal forms without legal personality are:
• the sole proprietorship
• the general partnership (VOF)
• the limited partnership (CV)
• the partnership
You can read exactly what these legal entities entail and what the advantages and disadvantages are in our blog ‘Which legal form do I choose for my company?’.
Law & More’s corporate lawyers can help you choose the right legal form. Law & More’s corporate lawyers will work with you to determine which legal form is most suitable for your company. When the desired legal structure has been clearly mapped out, the company must be established and registered with the Chamber of Commerce. Law & More coordinates this process for you.
Once the company has been established and set up, you can start to carry out your business activities. However, you will notice that legal aspects also play a major role here. For example, before entering into relationships with customers, you may be required to provide confidential information. In that case, it is advisable to draw up a non-disclosure agreement. It is then important to record all agreements with customers or suppliers in an agreement. Drawing up general terms and conditions can contribute to this. The corporate law attorneys at Law & More can draw up and assess contracts and general terms and conditions for you, so that you are not faced with any surprises.
Even if everything in the legal field is properly arranged within your company, there is unfortunately still the possibility that the counterparty does not want to cooperate or does not comply with its agreements. In order not to damage the relationship with customers or suppliers, it is recommended to first come to an amicable solution. A Law & More lawyers can assist you in this process. However, if it is not possible to resolve a dispute, legal action may need to be taken. Law & More has extensive experience in conducting legal proceedings in corporate law and does everything it can to achieve an optimal result for you.
In the field of contracts in the context of corporate law, you can contact Law & More with questions about:
• drafting and assessing contracts;
• terminating contracts;
• drafting a written notice of default in the event of non-compliance with a contract;
• resolving disputes arising from the conclusion of a contract;
• negotiating the content of contracts.
Are you planning to merge your company with another company, for example because you want to grow your company? Then there are three ways companies can merge:
• the company merger
• the stock merger
• the legal merger
Which merger is most suitable for your company depends on your specific situation. A corporate law attorney or a corporate law attorney from Law & More can advise you on this.
It is of course also possible that another company is interested in your company and that you are offered to sell your company to another company. Are you positive about the takeover and are you considering a business transfer? We can support you in negotiating as well as providing advice in advance. If not, it could be a hostile takeover. We speak of a hostile takeover if a company does not cooperate in the sale of its shares and another company, i.e., the acquirer, turns to the shareholders themselves. We know how your company can be protected against this and can therefore also provide you with legal assistance in this case.
In addition, Law & More can assist you if you intend to take over a company. When you buy another company as a company, it is essential that you carry out due diligence. You want all the information you need to make a well-informed decision about a merger or acquisition. Would you like to know more about this? Law & More’s corporate lawyers are at your service.
