In her role as a notary and lawyer Dr Laugwitz advises German and international clients, in particular medium-sized companies, investors, and private individuals.  She focuses especially on real estate and company law arrangements, above all real estate transactions, the structuring of transactions under company law and conversion procedures as well as the purchasing and selling of companies – at national level as well as concerning transactions with an international angle, depending on the case in question.

 

When it comes to her work as a notary and lawyer, Dr Laugwitz attaches great value to developing customised solutions for the parties concerned however complex the situation may be. In such cases, her comprehensive international experience is a great asset. Notarisations are undertaken in German and in English.
