Company crises and insolvency both pose risks but also offer opportunities.
Our law firm advises companies facing severe financial difficulties including the management, directors or shareholders. Our services in this field include the assessment and creation of possible restructuring measures and reorganization concepts as well as accounting reorganization. In this context we undertake a detailed legal risk analysis of alternative business strategies and implement the appropriate concept in the individual case.
For a business in crisis the question frequently arises of the liability of management under civil or even penal law. A further focus of insolvency consulting, therefore, is on the one hand identifying liability risks and measures for the avoidance of civil or penal liability of the body concerned. On the other hand we also advise supervisory boards and shareholders in connection with the assessment and pursuit of liability claims against directors and management.
In addition we support domestic and international investors in the acquisition of companies in insolvency proceedings. So-called 'distressed M&A transactions' have in the meantime become a standard component of our core M&A activities. The advise covers in particular the preparation and conduct of negotiations with the (provisional) insolvency administrator, the creation and negotiation of SPAs as well as the subsequent advising of the rescue company on the legal aspects of a successful turnaround.
