In addition, we advise our national and foreign clients on international restructuring cases or on other cross-border issues involving insolvency law. We support foreign clients on insolvency issues in Germany and German clients on insolvency issues abroad.
Through our activities as insolvency administrators, insolvency consultants and restructuring trustees, we are not only familiar with German insolvency law but also foreign insolvency laws. Furthermore, we have a comprehensive network in Germany and abroad.
We advise and represent foreign clients in Germany in pursuing their claims in their position as creditors, in continuing “insolvency-proof” business relations with German companies in insolvency or at risk of insolvency, in acquiring assets from German insolvency proceedings and in warding off avoidance and liability claims of German insolvency administrators.
Our clients benefit from our international network which comprises a large number of contacts in all important legal systems. Our lawyers are members of IEIN (Independent European Insolvency Network), INSOL International (long-standing membership in the Small Practice Issues Committee) and INSOL Europe, in the Ausschuss für Internationales beim Verband der Insolvenzverwalter Deutschland e. V and in ABI (American Bankruptcy Institute), among others.

Our other legal advice not only backs up our activities to restructure companies but also attests to many years of our own specialist expertise. In addition to company law and our M&A expertise, this includes particularly our cross-regional practice group in labour law.
Special expertise in the field of logistics law, which is increasingly gaining in importance, is provided by Dr. Roman Köper, who is a lawyer specialising in transportation and forwarding law. We can represent your company in this field both as a logistics service provider and as a principal of logistics services, especially within the framework of tenders.
