Sebastian Beyer – Taylor Wessing

Die Beratung zu Umstrukturierungen, Unternehmens- und Beherrschungsverträgen, Satzungsänderungen, Verschmelzungen und Ausgliederungen sowie Übernahmen und Hauptversammlungen gehören zum Alltagsgeschäft von Taylor Wessing. Zu diesen Themen werden regelmäßig Unternehmen und Konzerne, börsennotierte Aktiengesellschaften und deren Vorstände und Aufsichtsräte aus technologiegetriebenen Industrien beraten. Hervorzuheben ist außerdem die enge Verzahnung mit der Kapitalmarktrechtsgruppe sowie die Expertise in der Bearbeitung von Mandaten mit China-Bezug. Lars-Gerrit Lüßmann ist ein zentraler Kontakt für börsennotierte Unternehmen und Teil der von Klaus Grossmann geleiteten Praxisgruppe. Der im Aktien- und Kapitalmarktrecht erfahrene Sebastian Beyer ist ein weiterer zentraler Kontakt. Diese Schnittstellenkompetenz konnte man mit dem Zugang von Nikolaus Plagemann (zuvor bei Ceconomy) als Salary Partner im Januar 2022 weiter stärken.
