Foundations and autonomous institutions are subject to special public monitoring by the foundation authority or a supervisory authority in the relevant sector. Consequently, working with foundations requires in-depth knowledge of legislation, the practices of the foundation authorities, and the organisation and characteristics of the individual foundation.

We have many years' experience in advising commercial and non-commercial foundations as well as autonomous institutions. Our advisory services include formation, amendment of by-laws and extraordinary transactions. In addition, we provide legal assistance in the contact with foundation authorities and sector supervisory authorities in cases concerning supervisory issues. Moreover, we advise on governance and assist on the drafting of policies, rules of procedure, etc. 

Our advisory services include:

  • Formation of foundations and autonomous institutions 
  • Choice of organisational structure
  • Trustees' responsibilities
  • Rules governing the capital structures of foundations and autonomous institutions
  • Issues concerning distribution
  • Dissolution and merger of foundations and autonomous institutions
  • Amendment of by-laws and extraordinary transactions
  • Issues concerning special foundations, such as employee foundations, savings bank foundations and public foundations.
