„I particularly appreciated the modular approach of Zerbach & Company. In a first step, I was able to evaluate the quality of services by mandating Zerbach & Company with the preparation of a business and development plan and a subsequent company valuation. In this context, I initially got to know the high-quality advisory provided by Zerbach & Company. After my decision to reorganise the existing shareholder structure of my company was made, Zerbach & Company has been a professional advisor and companion for me in a situation that was entirely unfamiliar to me to that date. Throughout the entire process, the collaboration with the team was extremely pleasant.”

Managing Shareholder DuoTherm Rolladen GmbH
