Newsletter International Briefing, October 2020
Welcome to our autumn 2020 edition of our International Briefing.
While most of us are still grounded in our home countries or even home offices, legislation and best practice continue
to develop at their usual pace and we keep tracking the most important developments for your daily business:
As the UK becomes a third country on 1st January 2021, you and your business will have to calculate with increased
costs, barriers to trade and travel. We therefore would like to remind you of the Brexit related questions around commercial
and corporate law.
We inform on legislative plans to introduce a limited liability company in steward ownership in Germany and provide
an update on cross-border company conversion of a German GmbH and relocation of the registered office to another EU member state.
Moreover, you will find an overview of the planned legislative reform on German Competition Rules for big players
in the digital economy and the CJEU decision of July 2020 on international data transfers, as well as information
regarding business shutdown insurances, voluntary redundancy programs and on ESG matters in the European context.
In short: A lot of reading for dark autumn evenings, but less traveling means more time for reading, right?
