Corporate restructuring & insolvency

Corporate reorganisation

Part of our advice on corporate restructuring is an initial analysis of your company’s risks and opportunities. We examine whether your company is insolvent or overindebted in a legal sense and offer specific recommendations as to which measures should be taken to restructure your company.
We help to eliminate the economic crisis of your company and always keep an eye on the liability risks for the management and shareholders of the company. Our main areas of expertise are:
  • Support in the implementation of the restructuring concept
  • Negotiating with your creditors and debtors about new payment terms, waiver of claims or deferral of their claims
  • The structuring of capital measures such as capital cuts or capital increases, e.g. through cash or non-cash contributions or the conversion of existing receivables into a shareholding (debt-equity swap)
  • Advice on the raising and collateralisation of reorganisation and bridging loans

Corporate insolvency

Even when your company is on the verge of insolvency, you should not relinquish your power of control. If you approach your creditors at an early stage and convince them to support your restructuring concept, you can exert an important influence on the implementation of the insolvency proceedings, eg. by implementing a self-administration or an advance protective shielding procedure. This is how you can consequently implement the required measures for your restructuring concept in the insolvency plan procedure.
Typically, our services comprise:
  • Preparation of the insolvency application
  • Support within the scope of self-administration or a protective shield procedure through insolvency
  • Preparation of insolvency plans, certification of the prospects of success of restructuring concepts
  • Advice on the fulfilment of insolvency-specific obligations
If you are a creditor of an insolvent company, we will assist you in asserting your securities, registering your claims in the insolvency table and defending against claims arising from insolvency challenges.
A company screening well in advance prevents manageable risks from developing into major problems. “Company screening” is a structured legal inventory of your company. On your behalf, we take the perspective of an interested third party and search for specific risks.
The economic crisis of a company is often associated with criminal and liability risks for the management and owners of the company. We accompany our clients in these troubled times and show them where dangers and risks are a threat and where opportunities and chances arise to steer a company back into calmer waters. We will also help if you as a creditor are confronted with the economic crisis or even insolvency of your contractual partners.
