Lang & Rahmann advises English Limited on acquisition of 100% stake in German GmbH and Swiss AG
Lang & Rahmann advised a British group company active throughout Europe in the rental of temperature control equipment on the acquisition of 100% of the shares in a German GmbH and a Swiss AG. This was preceded by a shareholder dispute with a former managing director and minority shareholder which had lasted for several years. After various court proceedings in two jurisdictions, the forced withdrawal of the GmbH share decided by the majority shareholder advised by Lang & Rahmann was accepted as effective. The minority shareholding in Schweizer AG was transferred by mutual agreement.
