All businesses or companies have a specific legal form, such as a private limited company or a business partnership. Corporate law is about the incorporation and establishment of such legal forms. It also regulates relations and control within the company, such as the relationship between shareholders and directors or the relationship between partners. Corporate law is also important for mergers and acquisitions, and certain joint ventures. Ovidius advises and litigates in the field of corporate law.
