International capital providers, investors, corporates and private equity groups are all entering the German market. “Made in Germany” is still the undisputed seal of quality of the German economy and its outstanding companies. Many international “players” therefore inevitably want to participate in these companies and the associated profit opportunities.

These international companies both public and private operate in all different sizes, but mostly in the “upper” segment.

In most cases, foreign investors invest in companies with large numbers of employees ranging from several hundred to several hundred thousands. Dealing with such collectives naturally requires appropriate efforts and perfectly prepared financial planning processes. Only then can “takeovers” or participations be successful.

For foreign investors, dealing with German pension obligations is often a problem or even a dealbreaker. Ignorance of the underlying legal system and, moreover, ignorance of the case law to be observed, new shareholders often run into an unpredictable imbroglio with an uncertain outcome.

 It is not uncommon for transactions to be cancelled shortly before they are concluded. Or much worse: transactions that were initially found to be successful become a wrong decision in the aftermath. The effects can be enormous: staff reductions, company demise, suspension of pension payments with transition to statutory insolvency insurance.

It is therefore obvious at this point that special solutions tailored to the individual case are the most efficient, both legally and economically.
