Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

In the course, the forms of reorganization of companies (in particular mergers, conversions, demergers, contributions, real division) as well as their aspects and legal consequences under company law, civil law and tax law are discussed. At the end of this course, students should have a solid knowledge of reorganization law and be able to apply their knowledge of the legal and tax consequences of reorganizations in practice.
Most of the material will be dealt with digitally and asynchronously by sending cases and questions to be worked out. A forum will be set up on moodle where questions concerning the content can be discussed interactively. All units will take place digitally and synchronously at the specified times.
