Personnel issues are almost always an extremely important element when companies find themselves in financial difficulties or in a crisis. Often they can even “tip the scales”, as labour law can harbour significant risks that make a restructuring appear hopeless.
Through timely specialist advice, we can help you to manage or overcome these risks and even – and this is often overlooked – leverage commercial potential by exploiting provisions under insolvency and labour laws. This can open up new prospects for both companies and employees.
We support companies, investors and employees and their various panels and committees in overcoming economic as well as strategic crises.
We also offer comprehensive advice on collective and individual labour law.
Through our experience on “both sides of the counter” coupled with our expertise gained from insolvency administration, we develop restructuring-oriented solutions that take account of both business needs and labour-law regulations.
We negotiate and implement agreements on reconciliations of interest, redundancy packages and collective restructuring agreements. We devise and examine acquisition concepts and utilise transfer companies. Our special strengths here lie in providing assistance in company acquisitions in crisis situations and in insolvency.
