BUSINESS & LIABILITY

The legal requirements associated with operating a business constitute an important aspect of management. They concern not only the classic issues of individual and collective employment law but also embrace health and safety at work, environmental and consumer protection – indeed they are central to the very existence of the company.

More than ever before management is responsible for the safety of the company and its products. Monitoring the technical and legal aspects of safety conditions is not just an ongoing responsibility, it also plays a crucial role in company purchases and takeovers. Jakstadt & Partner supports its clients in developing strategies to reconcile substantive employment and civil law with corporate needs. Where corporate risk cannot be entirely ruled out by organisational precautions it is essential to develop suitable cover strategies. Jakstadt & Partner can collaborate with insurance brokers to identify residual risk and draft appropriate insurance clauses.
