Successful together. From the very start.

A stable structure needs a strong foundation. During the stage of formation of a business entity it is important to make decisions with foresight in order to create a solid basis for a flourishing future. Take these indicatory decisions together with an experienced partner by your side.


There are many different structuring options when it comes to the formation of a business entity – and even more obstacles.

We will therefore support you right from the stage of formation, set the course for the future together with you and smooth the path for a successful entrepreneurial future. Irrespective of whether you plan to construct your business on greenfield land or whether you are planning a spin-off, a management buy-in or a management buy-out: the experts at hba will be by your side in all legal areas so that you can primarily concentrate on the development of your business.


“Money isn’t everything but without money there is nothing”.
The same is true even for the best business idea.

We will advise you on the choice of suitable financing, will take on structuring and implementation and will support you in dealings with banks and investors. In addition, we will give you access to our broad network of investors, business angels and incubators.

Clear structures which reflect the interests of all parties involved are indispensable for sustainable success. As early as during the stage of formation of your business entity we will show you what is possible and what is economically reasonable in order to ensure fruitful cooperation with investors and business partners. In this context we plan far ahead so that the ideal legal framework conditions for taking on entrepreneurial responsibility and successful implementation of your visions are in place from the outset.
