Gritt Gräwe assists clients in the structuring of closed-end investment funds, from the initial idea to the calculation of the project, to prospectus preparation and distribution approval by BaFin (Federal Financial Supervisory Authority). Before joining Hanselaw, Gritt Gräwe worked for issuing houses in Hamburg for more than ten years.
As an economist among solicitors, she has learned that disputes can often be resolved quickly and satisfactorily in a structured discussion. As a trained business mediator, she therefore supports parties with out-of-court settlement for disputes.
Issuers have been entrusting us with the legal and tax conception of their capital market products for 20 years, whether it be individual investments, private placements, investments, KAGB (German Capital Investment Code) investment assets, crowdfunding projects or much more.
An eye for detail – and a complete overview
We not only provide the appropriate legal framework for the projects, we often also take over the entire preparation of financial statements and thus the heart of the project, including tax implications. This makes us far more than just a contractual supplier for our clients, but a valued sparring partner in the development of sophisticated financial products.
In dialogue with supervisory authorities
We know about the long arm of legislators and supervisory authorities. For this reason, we seek early dialogue with the responsible supervisory authorities on critical issues. After all, delays and nasty surprises can be avoided by clarifying things in advance.
Prepared to fight, if it comes to it
Our many years of experience in the conception of investment products is probably the reason why clients keep commissioning us, even if their investment did not go as expected. These are often providers and sales partners but are often also investors and institutional investors. We have an inside view of such investment products and thus know the arguments of both sides.
The long view
Together with our network partner c3 fonds.concept, we offer long-term support for investment products with the assumption of trusteeships, ongoing tax advice and auditing.

The intelligent conflict solution
Some conflicts are annoying, others take on threatening proportions. In all cases, the question arises how much energy, time and money should be spent on dealing with such a conflict. Mediation is a fast, cost-efficient and very effective way to resolve the conflict.
One process, many advantages:
Mediation proceedings are fast.
As there is no need to wait months for court hearings, mediation proceedings can begin within a few days. And not only that, the parties to the conflict usually reach a joint solution in just one day.
Mediation procedures are individual.
It is not someone else who makes a decision regarding the conflict, but rather both parties determine what the solution will be. A clear advantage, because nobody knows the respective interests as well as the parties themselves.
Mediation proceedings are confidential.
Everything discussed in the proceedings is subject to secrecy. Even if mediation fails, the content cannot be used against a conflict partner. Therefore, mediation proceedings make it possible, to discuss exactly what is really important for a solution. And nothing of it will get out.
Mediation proceedings are successful.
The numbers speak for themselves: more than 80 percent of the proceedings lead to an amicable solution of the conflict. This not only solves the conflict itself, but often also creates the basis for a sustainable future. 89 percent of the parties to a mediation proceeding would choose this path again in a new conflict.
Mediation procedures are cost-effective.
The costs of mediation proceedings are usually considerably lower than those of court proceedings. Not to mention the fact that a quickly resolved conflict no longer costs further attention and energy.
