The law firm is well respected in this niche market and has a national and international clientele comprising mostly SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises) but also including larger companies.
In our professional capacity as lawyers, we are bound by the legal requirements of confidentiality and ethical protection; as such NOVIUS Lawyers are able to guide their clients in all areas of legal services that are of crucial importance to companies.
Regarding tax issues, NOVIUS Lawyers offers a full-service package, in both direct and indirect taxes. It also provides preparatory advice and handles disputes, including, if necessary, before the court. For companies, NOVIUS Lawyers also offers advice on restructuring, investments and other projects.
For entrepreneurs, we offer advice relating to tax & succession planning. Not only do we offer advice, we also effectively see projects through to the end, and, if required,
we will engage services from a network of specialised professionals, including notaries, accountants, fiduciary mandataries, auditors, and so on at both the local and the international levels.
Company Law Services
NOVIUS Lawyers advises companies on important company law issues, both locally and internationally, including the creation of legal persons, mergers, divisions, liquidation, shareholder disputes, directors’ liability and corporate governance as well as the very specific mixed issues that surround family corporations.
There are also lawyers in the firm who are trained to act as trustees. In addition to advice, our clients can also rely on practical guidance, if necessary, with the assistance of specialised professionals from our network, both locally and internationally.
Services related to Intellectual Property Law
NOVIUS Lawyers advises and guides companies in terms of their intellectual property rights, specifically in relation to their brand rights, trade name rights, copyright and related rights and patent law rights. Its services encompass both guidance in applying for brand names and patents and advice on the scope of their intellectual property rights, as well as assistance in terms of legal procedures concerning intellectual property rights.
Other Legal Services
Many companies seek advice in negotiating and concluding a variety of business agreements or legal acts, ranging from contracts for new investments, distribution agreements, asset assignment contracts, and so on, to the termination of third-party agreements. Needless to say, we offer full legal services in the area.
Under certain circumstances, an urgent legal intervention may be unavoidable. If this is the case, we also attend to, insofar as it concerns a company-related matter, a suitable action in summary proceedings or seek an order for seizure or injunction. However, our firm discourages commencing court action and we only recommend such action as a last resort.
