Venture deals in Germany

The key features and differences to other jurisdictions

In this presentation Benjamin Ullrich, Tobias Lovett and Alexander Sekunde will discuss a range of topics including:

  • Particularities of a German cap table
  • Transaction timeline and signing/closing mechanics
  • German Foreign Direct Investment regime
  • Notable key market-standard investment terms
  • Practical considerations around share transfers

They will share their insights on these topics from the standpoint of a  UK investor (though many of these observations also apply to other foreign investors) and provide practical guidance on how to navigate potential pitfalls along the way.
