Repeatedly, businesses face great challenges due to their financial situation, due to the general economic climate, or internal influences.

Transactions are an important part of our work in restructurings. We advise on business acquisitions and sales in crisis as well as on sales out of insolvency. ­Furthermore, we provide advice and ­support on restructuring measures such as debt-equity swaps or the acquisition of nonperforming loans. Very often, such transactions are done together. We assist businesses or individual creditors in out-of-court restructurings. This also applies to financing in crisis. We support our ­clients in struc­turing shareholder loans or other mezzanine financing.

Advice to board members

A crisis of a company bears risks for the acting persons as well. We advise members of boards and management institutions regarding their duties. In particular, this concerns questions of the duty to file for insolvency and issues concerning transactions prior to a possible insolvency. In such situations, we comprehensively assist and advise these persons in order to safeguard them from personal liability and criminal charges.

Advice to investors

On the other hand, others’ crises may provide great opportunities to specialized investors. We advise these on the acqui­sition of businesses or business areas
from a company in crisis or insolvency, also with regard to insolvency proceedings and out-of-court restructurings.
