Corporate law deals with legal entities. A company has to deal with this area of law on a daily basis. After all, you conclude agreements, issue shares, make a profit or loss and appoint a management board. In corporate law, a dichotomy is made between:
1) Internal relations: you can think of matters that play a role within the company (staff, shareholders, etc.
2) External relations. You can think of acquisitions, collection, agreements, liability, customers, government, general terms and conditions, etc.
Company law is all about the operation of companies. The bv and the nv are the best-known companies. Shares, directors and the supervisory board are figures that you will encounter in this jurisdiction. Shareholder conflicts or mismanagement are also concepts that fall under company law.
Entering into agreements
A legal entity can enter into agreements. This works differently than with natural persons. A legal entity itself cannot enter into an agreement. The legal person must be represented. Usually by the board (the management). Agreements can also be entered into by the company in formation (bv or nv i.o.) in the incorporation phase. These must be ratified after incorporation. A company often concludes purchase agreements or rental agreements with customers or suppliers or an employment contract with its staff. It is wise to involve a lawyer in drawing up or verifying an agreement. For all agreements you can contact AGA Lawyers.
Drawing up general terms and conditions
If you as an entrepreneur provide goods / services, it is wise to record everything about the (re)sale and delivery in general terms and conditions. General terms and conditions are provisions in which you record everything about an agreement. This can be, for example, about the warranty, liability, cooling-off periods, the method of payment, or how your customers can dossier a complaint. But also about intellectual property and what to do in case of disputes.
In some cases, a director can be held liable for debts incurred by the company. Directors have power and responsibility. If a director makes wrong decisions, commits fraud, or does not comply with legal administrative requirements, he can be held personally liable. This can be done both outside and in bankruptcy.
For each case, we look at the most effective way to collect your claim. We try to get personal contact with your counterparty in order to come to a constructive solution. This often leads to a payment and resolution of the conflict.
