Overview

Our experienced R&I team can assist you in coping with the crisis and ensure the success of your company using various available restructuring techniques.

We regularly help our clients use the crisis as an opportunity for a fresh start. Whether traditional individually negotiated solutions, out of court restructurings or statutorily enshrined options such as the German Debt Securities Act (Schuldverschreibungsgesetz – SchVG) or the “protective shield procedure” (Schutzschirmverfahren) (section 270b) of the German Insolvency Code (Insolvenzordnung – InsO) – we find the right solutions for you.

In doing so, we take into account contractual restructuring options and are perfectly familiar with international procedures such as Chapter 11, the UK scheme of arrangement or the French safeguard prodecure (procédure de sauvegarde).

At Linklaters, you benefit from an integrated approach which also involves experts from the areas of banking, corporate/M&A, capital markets and private equity with the focus on insolvency or similar issues.

Moreover, you can always rely on our international teams for restructuring & insolvency and benefit from our experience in restructurings encompassing various jurisdictions and legal systems. Our German lawyers are just as familiar with the international legal and economic environment as the English and US legal teams based at our Frankfurt office, who of course are also able to advise you in German.
