Restructuring options in corporate crises

Solution-oriented advice is required to overcome corporate crises as the future of the company, jobs, and livelihoods are at stake. We jointly develop and discuss the individual reorganization options including all their advantages and disadvantages to find the solution that is a best fit for you and your company.

When selecting legal action, we advise you on filing and guide you through opening and main proceedings, in particular in relation to protective shields, self-administration, and reorganization and insolvency plans.

You will benefit from our many years of experience including an extensive network of renowned auditors, management consultants, banks, and crisis investors.

Options for action by creditors

Suppliers and institutional creditors may be severely affected by their business partners’ insolvency., We develop strategies jointly with you to reduce impending losses and to maintain sustainable business relationships.

Distressed investing/Non-performing loans (NPLs)

Corporate crises usually offer opportunities to gain new stakeholders, either because creditors shy away from the increased risk caused by their debtor’s crisis and are willing to transfer their (possibly distressed) claims to new creditors, or because new investors are willing to invest fresh capital in the crisis company. We advise financial investors on acquiring (defaulted) claims from and on investing equity capital in crisis companies, to support the company in adapting or realigning its group of stakeholders.


We also advise and represent clients in litigation, in particular in: 

  • defending criminal and liability claims
  • defending insolvency contestation 
  • enforcing claims by insolvency administrators and creditors

Our clients

Our clients include companies and corporate groups as well as their shareholders, general managers, board members, supervisory board members, and business partners such as credit institutions, suppliers, and creditors, but also investors and insolvency administrators.
