New as a Geschäftsführer: Managing your GmbH

21. August @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

You are “Geschäftsführer” of a German “GmbH”. Learn about the tricky details of how your organization works: its Corporate Governance, including its interaction with third parties, and its diverse Legal and Regulatory parameters. Learn about your personal “Duties of Care”: What are the “musts” to take care of in your “Geschäftsführer”-role in a diversity of business scenarios: making Business decisions, Competition issues, M&A/Corporate Finance Transactions, Crisis Management, HR Management – and what are the pitfalls to avoid? Furthermore, we will cover Financial and Tax Compliance matters, give you guidelines for your Financial Audit and explain the most relevant HR Finance matters to you. Ultimately, learn about how to protect yourself by way of a D&O insurance policy: What can be covered, what not? – At any time of our Seminar, we will help you finding your way through the jungle of German Corporate Law, providing you with the knowledge to always act in compliance with the German rules. Also hear about the Criminal Sanctions of the German jurisdiction and learn how to keep these unpleasant claws away from you.
