Die Wahl der Rechtsform – Die Genossenschaft als Option im Nachfolgeprozess
Many questions under a succession process are of a legal nature. The choice of legal form comes to a fundamental importance in company law. The choice influences in a significant mass the company’s internal organs, decision-making processes and the financial results to be achieved.
The present report deals with thoughts about the cooperative form – a little-known entitiy with a very specific entrepreneurial potential. While the legal form of a sole proprietorship and often the AG and GmbH appeal to individual entrepreneurs, there are also forms of collective entrepreneurship , for which the cooperative is an interesting option. The cooperative can be used as an appropriate construct to raise capital in width – but it can also be understood as a solution to anchor a company and its values in a community – or they can also be used as a basis to anchor modern, sustainable business models in the width.
