10th CMS Hasche Sigle Prize: Recognition for outstanding corporate law dissertations


Berlin – Last year, Dr Markus Fehrenbach, Dr Adrian Cavin and Dr Tobias Kahnert completed outstanding academic research projects in the field of German corporate law. As a leading German commercial law firm, CMS Hasche Sigle has been awarding a prize for theses on business, corporate and capital markets law on a regular basis since 2003. It has now recognised the work of the three short-listed entrants with prizes of EUR 5,000, 3,000 and 2,000.The prizes were awarded during the Faculty of Law's graduation ceremony at the University of Passau.

"It wasn't easy for us to decide among so many exceptional submissions, as we award these prizes for the tenth time," said CMS Hasche Sigle partner Dr Axel Sigle, head of the Corporate and Transactions practice. "Ultimately, however, the three prize winners impressed us chiefly by delivering academic depth together with a particularly close connection with legal practice." Dr Joachim Natterer, partner at CMS Hasche Sigle and coordinator of the selection process, highlighted the relevance of the winning dissertations in his congratulatory address: "We would like to thank the three promising new talents for their outstanding contributions from the field of current research."

The prize-winning dissertations for the 10th CMS Hasche Sigle Prize:

  1. "The flawed shareholder resolution in the GmbH (private limited company) – General law relating to deficiencies in resolutions and the analogous application of stock corporation law" (Dr Markus Fehrenbach)
  2. "Raising capital in the GmbH (private limited company) and AG (public limited company)" (Dr Adrian Cavin)
  3. "Legislation in a European corporate context – harmonisation, competition, model laws" (Dr Tobias Kahnert)
