Die Form der AG wird zwar in den letzten Jahren h~iufiger aber dennoch im Vergleich sehr selten gew~ihlt und stellt somit eher eine Ausnahme dar. Aus diesem Grund wird im Folgenden nur kurz auf die AG eingegangen. 1 Gesellschaft mit beschr,~nkter Haftung (GmbH) Die GmbH stellt eine aus einem oder mehreren Gesellschaftem bestehende Handelsgesellschaft mit eigener Rechtspers6nlichkeit dar, die zu jedem gesetzlich zulgssigen Zweck gegrtindet werden kann. Ihr Stammkapital ist in Stammeinlagen zerlegt.
Somit haften die Gesellschafter der GmbH (abgesehen von ihren Stammeinlagen und der Grtindungsphase) nicht far die Gesellschaftsschulden der GmbH. Von dieser Regel gibt es allerdings einige Ausnahmen, wie z. B. die sogenannte Durchgriffshaftung. In solchen Fallen hafien auch die Gesellschafter mit ihrem Privatverm6gen far die Gesellschaftsschulden. Aufgrund ihrer Haftungsbeschr~inkung und der M6glichkeit, eine gesellschaftsfremde Person zum Gesch~ifisftihrer zu bestellen, ist die GmbH rechtlich sehr vorteilhaft.
Die Phasen der Vertragsgestaltung werden in der Praxis nicht in einer festen Reihenfolge durchlaufen. Vielmehr bestehen Wechselwirkungen, sodass die einzelnen Phasen oft mehrmals absolviert werden mtissen und allein deshalb auch schon nicht als ein starr vorgegebenes Ablaufschema der Vertragsgestaltung zu verstehen sind. Ein sorgf'~iltig gestalteter Gesellschaflsvertrag kann Risiken und Streitigkeiten zwischen den Vertragsparteien vorbeugen. Es empfiehlt sich weiterhin, den Vertrag auch nach der Unternehmensgrfindung regelm~iBig auf seine Ziele hin zu iaberprtifen.
