Stefan J. Geibel solves the problems under German law of finding a legal classification and substantiation for any of the administrative trust applications by describing it as an atypical private company.
Trust shareholdings, real property trusts, accounts held on trust, property management, collection, security pools and double trusts, syndicate, bond and refinancing trusts, non-incorporated foundations: the problems of finding a legal classification and substantiation for any of these administrative trust applications under German law have still not been solved by the results obtained in legal practice. Stefan J. Geibel describes the administrative trust as an atypical private company, thus making it possible to assume that a separate trust fund is created in accordance with the principles of the German Gesamthand. The author also answers questions in procedural and insolvency law, commercial law, corporate law and the law concerning groups of companies and enables the distinction under German law between administrative trusts and security trusts as well as the transposition of English or American trusts into German law.
