In the case of business transfers, a number of issues are normally raised in connection with the business conducted by the company to be sold / purchased. This means that legal issues vary from transfer to transfer. Each business transfer is unique and must be planned, negotiated and implemented based on the seller's / buyer's goal picture.

JKN is particularly focused on business transfers that affect the real estate and construction industry and assists in the entire chain of a business acquisition from the declaration of intent, via due diligence and contract negotiations, to the implementation of pre-negotiated agreements.

Disputes can incur large costs and take a lot of time and effort from clients. JKN, therefore, tries to avoid disputes by entering into settlements that are based on a risk and opportunity analysis taking facts about the course of events, commercial considerations and legal regulations into account.

Sometimes, however, it is not possible to reach a settlement on business terms and then we assist our clients with full force. We have extensive experience in disputes, both in general court and the arbitral tribunal.

Finally, the possibility of mediation should be mentioned. Mediation is often a good method for reaching a solution that both parties consider reasonable, especially in large and complex cases in which the costs of litigation become unreasonably high. Contract disputes at the "nuts and bolts level" are particularly well suited for mediation.
