Annegret prepares and notarizes documents for all types of matters. She routinely notarizes company transactions such as mergers, changes in form of entity, spin-offs, etc. Though these transactions are often purely domestic transactions, it is not unusual for them to have a cross-border aspect as these types of transactions become more prevalent in the European Union. Annegret also prepares documentation for shareholder’s meetings and notarizes them as may be required by law. Included as part of her Notary practice are M&A transactions, whether as asset or share deals. At times these transactions extend over a long time period, possibly for years at a time. For these types of transactions, clients often engage Annegret to establish a Notary’s escrow account to ensure the security of their funds. Real estate transactions and corporate housekeeping matters are also the subject of Annegret’s notarizations. Finally, she serves as a Notary for property succession and inheritance matters.

Corporate Law and Inheritance Law

Annegret has vast experience in corporate law matters, including advising on shareholder disputes, corporate reorganizations, corporate succession matters, inheritance and estate matters, inheritance disputes, preparing and amending articles of incorporation, and any related issues involving these areas of law.
