More and more tech companies are switching to the legal form of an SE during their growth trajectory. This legal form seems appealing to those handling an international business and aiming for a potential IPO.

The webinar is aimed at all those responsible for dealing with these topics, in particular legal and strategy departments, CFOs and CEOs.

What you will learn:

  • certain key specifics of the SE as a legal form
  • what possibilities there are to become an SE
  • how to avoid pitfalls when dealing with the employee representatives (in Germany and elsewhere)
  • employees rights within an SE structure 
  • how long it takes to switch into the SE form
