Requirements for a Stock Corporation in Germany (“AG”)

German Corporate Lawyers

The stock corporation (Aktiengesellschaft, AG) has always enjoyed great popularity in Germany as a corporate form, as it releases its founders from liability with their private assets, while at the same time enjoying the highest reputation in commercial transactions. However, the formation of a stock corporation is a highly complex process, as the legal requirements and formalities for this type of company are very extensive. This task requires a solid knowledge of the legal regulations in Germany and the company’s organisational structures.

Our lawyers will inform you about the legal requirements for forming an AG and ensure that it is placed on a solid legal footing.
