Abolition of bearer shares: Deadline!

Bearer shares are only permissible if a company is listed on a stock exchange or has structured the bearer shares as intermediated securities. If this is not the case, bearer shares must be converted into registered shares by 30 April 2021 at the latest. The conversion requires notarization by a notary public.

Immediate execution of a non-competition clause of an employment agreement

Reichlin Hess represented a client (employer) in the super provisional execution of a non-competition clause foreseen in an employment agreement. In a partial approval of the request, the employee was prohibited by the competent court from using documents of the former employer and from contacting its customers and suppliers. This result is pleasing for the client, as it allows its legitimate interests of confidentiality to be safeguarded.
