Nomos founds “ZPG”

Nomos Verlag publishes the first journal dealing exclusively with the law of partnerships and sole proprietorships. Issue 1 of “ZPG” will be published in January.

The new “ZPG – Zeitschrift für das Recht der Personengesellschaften und Einzelunternehmen” (Journal for the Law of Partnerships and Sole Proprietorships) provides comprehensive information on the law relevant to partnerships and sole proprietorships, with a particular focus on legal advice and legal practice (lawyers, law firms and notaries). Its topics are either typical for advising owner-managed partnerships and sole proprietorships, or they are dealt with there exclusively in the light of advising them. Thus, the partnership law of the KG, OHG and Kapitalgesellschaft & Co. and GbR are among the core topics. Family law and the law of succession with its succession and compulsory portion issues are also among the important areas of advice for most owner-managed companies. Register law, including the digitalization of register-legal procedures and tax law with questions of the profit distribution and – use or the balance belong likewise into the spectrum of the new magazine like the occupation right in particular of right and tax-advisory occupations with questions to the constitution in the PartG and other legal forms.

Each issue contains an essay section with classic basic essays on general system issues, a case law section with selected current decisions and comments, as well as a section dedicated to practice with solutions to practical problems.

The editors are Prof. Dr. Martin Henssler and Dr. David Markworth.
