We have a high-performing Restructuring and Insolvency team, which has many years of practical experience dealing with complex restructurings at all stages of crisis. In addition, we advise companies on all legal and economic consequences that result from having business relations with companies which undergo an economic crisis or against whom insolvency proceedings have already been instituted.
Working together with our clients, we develop tailor-made restructuring approaches that take both the stage of the crisis and the interests of the relevant stakeholders adequately into account. In doing so, our restructuring experts benefit from the advantages of belonging to a full-service law firm and work from the start consistently in teams that are made up of well-proven and recognised specialists and, therefore, combine all case-specific legal and industry know-how. As a result, our clients do not only benefit from our restructuring and financing expertise, but also from our industry expertise, which has been developed by special industry groups over many years. We can perform the following measures at very short notice, taking into account all industry-specific regulations and customs: moratoriums and standstill agreements, reorganisation financing and debt rescheduling, debt-to-equity swaps, corporate restructuring and corporate finance transactions (e.g. transformations, spin-offs, hive-downs, carve-outs, distressed mergers and acquisitions, new capital interests, including from the area of venture capital), restructuring within the context of structured insolvency proceedings with or without the debtor in possession and with or without an insolvency plan.
Our Restructuring and Insolvency team assists you at very short notice when your contract partner is in crisis, on the verge of insolvency or has already become insolvent in order to ensure that this situation does not lead to economic difficulties for your own company. If we are timely called in when the insolvency of a contract partner emerges, we can keep the financial losses for your company to a minimum. In the event of a contract partner’s insolvency, the (preliminary) insolvency administrator should be dealt with in a target-oriented manner, in particular when enforcing security interests (rights to the separation and recovery of assets and rights to the separation of assets for the purposes of preferential satisfaction). In addition, a focus must continuously be on preventing and, subsequently, defending against unjustified rescission claims.
