Restructuring & Insolvency

Use change as an opportunity

In a challenging phase of business, a solid and strategic overall concept is essential. Quick decisions are necessary, and fundamental liability questions may need to be clarified within a short timeframe. BRL’s multidisciplinary service approach is a particular benefit for clients facing difficult situations.

Our lawyers, tax consultants and auditors have restructuring expertise they can combine with the experience our insolvency administrators have across Germany. The proven close teamwork of these experts ensures the highest standard of performance, in every phase of a company’s restructuring, whether we provide restructuring concepts or insolvency planning, apply shielding methods or engage in insolvency administration. Our international approach enables us to also handle multi-country matters.
