Family-owned Mid-tier Business

Consulting for owner-operated enterprises – fast, effective, successful

Today, the business success of owner- and family-operated medium-size enterprises – “Mittelstand” in German – depends to a large degree on the ability to react quickly and effectively to changes, whether in the market or within the company. This is as true for planned company development as it is during growth phases or restructuring. Together with our clients, we create custom legal and taxation structures and take care of the necessary implementation steps, always with the interests of the owners in mind.

We approach every client-matter as an individual challenge. Multidisciplinary teams of experts develop the best solution for each case.

Organization & corporate housekeeping

Successful business development should be based on a corporate and tax structure that is individually tailored to the needs of the owner. The early and foresighted establishment of the appropriate organizational framework is especially important in multi-person corporations, in order to minimize the potential for conflict and to ensure the continuation and maintenance of the company into the future. In ongoing operations there are also many different legal, tax and commercial questions that can come up, not least with regard to capital measures, restructuring and reorganization. With our multidisciplinary teams we are ready to provide assistance at any time.


The financial basis of a company, especially the ratio of equity to borrowed capital, is of central importance for positive economic development. Alongside conventional bank financing, alternative sources of capital are increasingly important.


Mergers and acquisitions are attractive to companies for the purpose of expanding market share or competitive advantage, or for withdrawing from business areas. But the acquisition or sale of a company involves many challenges. BRL acts as your professional adviser and can assist you through to a successful transaction.


The enormous opportunities as well as the risks of globalization, such as higher competitive pressure, have led to an increase in the internationalization of owner- and family-operated companies. With its customary efficiency, BRL assists clients in projects of international scope, in Europe and beyond.

Direct contact / central contact person

For years we have provided clients with legal and tax advice in all questions of business life. The direct contact and dialogue with our lawyers and advisers is very valuable. They develop tailored solutions in matters of business law, especially corporate law, labour and employment law and tax questions. These central, cross-discipline contact persons are very important, especially to owner- and family-operated companies, with regard to effective implementation and reasonable cost structures.
