Our German restructuring team has experts in banking, capital markets and corporate law as well as employment and tax law. It advises banks and corporate entities on cross-border reorganisations, restructurings and insolvency proceedings.
We are developing innovative solutions and products to provide the best advice to lenders and borrowers in crisis or near insolvency within an international and increasingly complex market. As part of the worldwide restructuring group we work with colleagues in the world's financial centres as an international team, setting new standards in cross-border work-outs and restructurings.
Restructuring involves many stakeholders and solutions often need to be implemented quickly. We know how to deal with these challenges and run the transaction as adviser to a steering committee on the lenders’ side or in pushing for a solution on the borrower’s side.
Our team belongs to the leading practices for Restructuring & Insolvency in Germany.
