Carsten Brüninghaus is head of our Berlin office and our notary in Germany; he is also a certified specialist lawyer for tax law.

As our notary, he renders all notary services which are required from a commercial law notary. Carsten advises both German and international clients on all matters of corporate law, from the foundation of companies (also start-ups, business angels and venture investors) through advice to individual shareholders and equity financing rounds up to extensive M&A transactions. A main focus of his activity is the provision of support during complex restructurings pursuant to the German Law Regulating the Transformation of Companies (Umwandlungsgesetz, UmwG) (mergers and demergers, changes of legal form).

He is recommended by Handelsblatt/Best Lawyers for corporate law.
